Teens have gone from diagramming sentences to abbreviating even the most casual of phrases (see btw, idk, lol, and ttyl).
The same way a watched pot doesn’t boil, a stared-at clock doesn’t get an ACT Reading passage done
It’s a monster made of questions, A dragon to be trained,
It comes alive on May the third
And messes with your brain.
