Foggy Morning

Anything But Standard



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.
