Changing Grades

Changing Grades

does it ever feel
like you're faking
your own
report card?

does it ever feel
you're changing
your F's
to B's
since failure
is so demoralizing?

does it ever feel
like you're fooling yourself
like you tried
fooling a parents
by changing
the grades
on your report card
to yourself?

does it ever feel
like you're fooling yourself
since
you can't
do simple math
even
with the B+
you gave yourself
in arithmetic?

does it ever feel
like you're the parent
knowing
from the crudeness
of the correction
your child
has changed
its grade?

does it ever feel
like you're the parent
knowing
yet denying
the deception
since
cultivating
a failure
feels
like a failure
too?
