This unfair judgment on the youth,
is so very biased to tell you the truth.
Grownups assume & judge without a second thought.
This is why a student and teacher fought.
The cause was not for discrimination or racism.
Nor was it neglectfulness or Favoritism.
But for a wrong & stereotype.
The child was innocent of all accusations
But it did not matter the teacher was hating.
They felt that they were bout right,
So no one would yield,all they did was fight fight fight.
Suddenly the child went silent & withdrew as any smart person would.
The teacher was so mad that she did not see the child's good.
The child came home telling her dad,
He said don't tell anyone that he teaches her or they'll get mad.
They both agreed, with a spit handshake to seal the deal,
This event is from a book, but it doesn't make it any less real.
