I wrote this one in honor of all the standardized tests and test prep that is not supposed to be teaching to the test, but has shades of it.

Stop teaching! Stop teaching! Stop teaching!
What do we have to do to get this through your heads.
We want them to know how to take standardized tests.
I guess we will have to start grading you teachers 


We have discussed it. The committee of Non-teachers and I.
We have decided to issue you demerits on the stuff the state thinks is important.
Hey, are you listening? Then what is wrong with you?
It is all about circling bubbles, you fool. Stop TEACHING!
