A Girl & A Boy

Posted by kristenwillms@knights.ucf.edu on May 27, 2017 at 10:10 AM

In the classroom

There sat a girl

Behind her

There sat a boy

The girl saw them as equals

The boy did not share that view


The day of the test results

Was upon them

The boy did well

The girl did better

 

The boy, enraged

Brought his textbook

Down upon her

The girl, shocked

Saw blackness, then

Briefly lost time

 

The boy felt injustice

As he should have

Been the better

The girl felt injustice

That her brilliance

Could be dismissed
