Some teachers keep the entitled kids entitled.
Providing them with privileges,
giving them their time,
they polish their own persona
with the praise of prima donnas,
all the while praying that the unkempt kid who never showers
isn’t coming down the hall to talk to them.
(he just doesn’t try)
(he’ll never learn)
that boy walking down the hall
is not falling through the cracks —
those teachers are pushing him.
