Ridiculous

Ridiculous

the way you all try

to tell us that

tests will define us

align us 

along your lines

which we 

are not allowed to cross.

Ridiculous

the way that they tell

the teachers this is right

that this is how we all learn

that we can absorb information that is thrown at us

a torrent 

and that 

we are okay with wasting our time

on crosswords and coloring pages

Ridiculous 

that they tell us we must all be unique

and then

eliminate our expression

reducing us to numbers 

that increase your numbers

so that you can have a nice vacation this year

don't tell us we matter then waste our potential

that 

is just

Ridiculous.
