March comes in with a…poem?

Ticonderoga

Thick barreled   befitting small clumsy fingers
grimly shaping consecutive rows of letters
extra marks for keeping between the lines

bent   studious  anticipating lifetime habits
in thrall of shrill supervisors
documenting every shortcoming
critical of the slightest fault

laboring with little hope of reward
succeeding without getting ahead
ancient before their time
