Ode to MCAS

We are producing a nation
that can either pass
a standardized test
or not. Gone are the days
when we sent our children
off to school
to come back with their minds broadened
and their curiousity piqued.
No. Today they are taught
how to pass, how to fit in
to the bubbles on a ScanTron.
And to hell with all the
freaks and queers
and poor people
who can’t fit in, keep up,
or who just don’t want to.
We are producing a nation of
idiots and someday
those idiots
will grow up and
make ill-informed decisions
about us.
