Frantic Grading Haiku

3. The frantic ending/
To a grueling semester/
Strangely calming/
#haiku

4. Cheating students try/
To game the American/
System of learning/
#haiku

5. There is disrespect/
For American thinking/
Trying to cheat grades/
#haiku

6. Critical thinking/
On subjects besides cheating/
Is undervalued/
#haiku

7. This Golden island/
Still rewards creative thought/
Though it can be gamed/
#haiku

8. I am indignant/
That students think that cheating/
Is American/
#haiku

9. “It’s like lobbying”/
For our tax advantages:/
(Venal Washington)/
#haiku

10. But mercifully/
Government education/
“Ain’t” political/
#haiku
