I bite down on my pencil
Come on, concentrate
This question doesn’t make sense
Focus! Stop getting distracted!
I stare at the old analog clock on the classroom wall

The answer must be C
Maybe A
No, it’s definitely B
D, All of the above?

There must be something wrong with me
I stretch
The cheap folding chair squeaks
Why do teachers test me like this?
Why do they make it so there’s only one right answer?
Just give me a pen
An open ended question
And watch me soar
