spring #9…

in a process
that
even
a mayan priest
would find
ostentatious
each spring
sealed bundles
of
educational evaluations
are conveyed
to
the classroom
there
beneath
the ritualistic blade
of
knowledge
young students
who’ve been
acclimatized
before
ascending
the mountain
called
state test requirements
begin
their daily trek
and
upon completion
like
all climbers
they discard
much
of what
they were
forced
to
carry

  1. An excellent piece. But I have a problem I often think about.
    Not about this piece, but life in general. Are our opinions
    formed by a dysfunctional society, or rather by old age.

  2. Good to know the truth of where learning disappears to. They have been telling us that the long summer vacation is the culprit.
