To Whom It Concerns

Was watching this episode of Roseanne, Season 3, with J a couple weeks back and forgot how good Darlene’s recital poem was. No hidden meanings here, I just really love this piece.

To Whom It Concerns

To whom it concerns, Darlene’s work will be late,
it fell on her pancakes and stuck to her plate…
To whom it concerns, my mom made me write this,
and I’m just a kid, so how can I fight this…
To whom it concerns, I lost my assignment,
maybe I’ll get lucky: solitary confinement…
To whom it concerns, Darlene’s great with the ball,
but guys don’t watch tomboys when they’re cruising the hall…
To whom it concerns, I just turned thirteen,
too short to be quarterback, too plain to be queen…
To whom it concerns, I’m not made of steel,
when I get blindsided my pain is quite real…
I don’t mean to squawk, but it really burns…
I just thought I’d mention it, to whom it concerns…

This should be credited to Joss Whedon, who wrote the episode “Brain-Dead Poets Society” in which it appears.
