The Toughest Subject - Oct. 10, 2020

most of us score decently

when our strength is measured

against another’s weakness

where we don’t test well is answering

angry phrases with understanding words

or hard hits with patient touches

so everyone write an essay on how

the word “giving” merged into forgiving

those who grade less than a C-

need to go back over their notes

and practice their homework

before re-taking the exam

they’ll keep the tutor on call

for the days when a big zero

knocks us back to the lesson

we’ve all dog-eared to death
