A poem about worksheeets

Paper
meant to be
consumed in
white lit classrooms

What
could cause
a man
to create
such an oddity

dire straits
cause
the creation of
ideas from ideas
from ideas
all false

Some man
some where
wondered
how
to be
creative

but
unable
to be
creative
he wrote
a
mass produced
worksheet

meant
to
stir
the
creativity
of
others


this was inspired by a worksheet I had to do for writing class at school.

  6. Worksheets with a purpose can be helpful, but depends on what you are outlining.
