Poem by Kristina Ezzi and Ashlee Bosh

In school I learned…
Not to start a crab apple war on the playground.
That chewing gum is a sin.
That long division is only meant to confuse us.
Always make sure that a teacher isn’t watching when you table top a fellow student.
That History dates will never be obtained in my memory for longer than maybe a week.
To hold my bladder for ages.
That thirty minutes in not long enough for 200 or more kids to eat lunch.
That we were expected to act as adults, yet we were babysat all day.
How to do jumping jacks in gym class.
How to stare at a blackboard for hours at a time.
That procrastination works 75% of the time.
