Today I went to school, and I guess I learned some stuff.

I learned how to hold a pencil, but it won’t stay steady.

Now do these color sheets, and try to stay in the lines.

But I can’t hold this crayon steady, and I’m getting pretty mad

Another and another, all the same it’s just a mess.

All the other kids can do it, why not me, why not me?

I feel really dumb.

 

Today I went to school, and I guess I learned some stuff.

I’m “developmentally delayed,” what that means I don’t know.

All I know is I’m not going, I’m going in between.

Though I feel really smart, I’m told I can’t go on.

I read before the others, and I remember facts really well.

Not to toot my littler horn.

 

Today I went to school, and I guess I learned some stuff.

We said the ABC’s for what must be the millionth time.

I got bored, so I sang them, opera style too.

Oops, I guess I wasn’t supposed to do that,

I’m trouble now, but I can’t see why.

There aren’t any victims as far as I can see.

Now I’m losing recess time, for a victimless crime.

 

Today I went to school, and I guess I learned some stuff.

I learned about phonetics, and some other things.

I guess I’ll use them, in context I suppose.

Standardized testing isn’t fun.

My score went down, but it’s still way above

Am I slowly becoming dumb?

Well, not very much that I did today.

 

I went to school today, and I guess I learned some stuff.

I can say all the counties and “important” facts about the state.

Will I need it, I don’t know, but trivial facts are fun.

 

I went to school today, and I guess I learned some stuff.

More trivial things I don’t really need, but I feel pretty good.

 

I went to school today, and I guess I learned some stuff.

Multiply decimals is not very fun.

How far does it move over?

I can’t really tell.

 

I went to school today, and I guess I learned some stuff.

I don’t like numbers and letters mixed together.

It makes me very, very confused.

Side tracked conversations in English class, make it rather fun.

 

I went to school today, and I guess I learned some stuff.

Learning French online was not very smart.

Have I really learned anything at all?

From time to time, the little wins.

Not too often, but never, not never.

I know more history than my history teacher.

Oh, plus the history lies, and omits lots of stuff.

This government thing, I don’t really know?

It’s starting to seem like more of a scam.

It’s nearly impossible to fix, and it needs to be done.

Perhaps we would be better, if it just went away.

 

I went online today, and I know I learned some stuff.

I’ve been lied to a lot, even more than I thought, and it makes me quite

upset.

Yet I’m finding solutions, to all our problems,

And there’s no centralized system, in any of the solution.

I think that’s quite a plus.
