Frantic Grading Haiku


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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