To Upgrade Mediocrity - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There will never be a true reflection,
Of what can be accomplished to be achieved.
As long as school teachers are tampering,
With low test scores of slower students.
And those behind the scenes unseen,
Find ways to upgrade mediocrity all over the place...
With ratings to award those of so-so talents,
To promote their plagiaristic ways with visibility...
As a fudging is done to do as they please,
To keep hidden self doubt and other insecurities.
