The teacher / thinking of retirement
Dealt out the test / like playing cards
Everyone got the same / but it wasn’t fair
Because the children had been dealt / different hands
By their mothers / and fathers / and lack thereof

This poem was written to the deal poem prompt all the way back on the Day 10 challenge in April at Poetic Asides.
