I look before you, dark and bare,
I fix you with a daring stare.
Your hands, they shake, while reaching for chalk,
And all around is silence; no talk.

Your hand reaches up so painfully slow,
And the chalk screeches with dread and woe.
The words form carefully on my face:
A perfect white, as fine as lace.

You turn around as if in a daze,
While the teacher steadily meets my gaze.
She looks at you and states quite clear:
"Your answer is wrong! You've failed I fear."

Your classmates giggle while you sit back down,
And I smirk darkly at your shameful frown.
I triumph again; the taste is sweet,
While you drown in a sea of defeat.

I knew blackboards were evil creatures... you just can't trust them!
