Teaching Fail

I don’t recall exact atrocities,
but I remember hating English class
most years of secondary school. The keys
to wit and eloquence were not dispensed.
The teachers made us write down summaries
and our reactions – called them book reports.
Diverting me from plots and mysteries
to lit I loathed was teaching from the ass,
but they did not deflect me from degrees.
