Everyone be following the same path,
The College Boards be releasing same wrath.
I wonder, why we take standardized tests-
If we are anything but standard.
We students are the future,
Told by adults to stretch and nurture.
Each of our individual, unique ways-
To be punished by a yardstick-like test.
Since when does vocabulary predict worth,
A test that causes nothing but hurt.
Leads desperate amongst us to cheat-
A system nobody can beat.
18 years of your life reduced to a test,
How do bubbles in a page resemble to who’s best?
Man these schools are missing so much.
