“ain’t” it grand

ain’t it beautiful,
ain’t it grand,
using ‘ain’t’,
despite teacher’s reprimand.

ain’t, ain’t, ain’t
ain’t you,
ain’t me,
basking in impunity.

red-ink white out,
papers do decay,
no more indelible stains,
that ain’t be washed-away.

ain’t gonna do it,
ain’t gonna follow traffic sane,
when we got here an empty,
break-down lane.
