From the book Revenge of the Lunch Ladies
Our homework assignment was simply to write down
the capitals of every state.
I wrote down MONTANA, NEW YORK, INDIANA.
I thought I was doing just great.
I wrote down ALASKA, WYOMING, NEBRASKA,
VIRGINIA, VERMONT, SOUTH DAKOTA.
I also wrote MARYLAND, UTAH, RHODE ISLAND,
CONNECTICUT, MAINE, MINNESOTA.
I wrote down all fifty and just to make certain,
I checked them and then double-checked them.
I handed mine in with the rest of the class
for the teacher to go and correct them.
I guess I must not have been paying attention,
or maybe I'm just a bit deaf.
Whatever the reason, I misunderstood,
so I got a capital "F."
