Grading (an acrostic poem)

Gathering my students’ hopes and fears

Relinquishing my humanity for cold analytical logic

Assessing their ability and competency

Dispensing points like a pharmacist gives out pills

Insuring the proper prescription for the script they have handed me

Never letting the person in front of the counter

Get the wrong pill to swallow
