Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

See, the problem is

 

See, the problem is,

I am too familiar with the questions,

I know why they are being asked,

and I know what to say

and what not to say

when I answer them.

 

See, the problem is,

it’s not a test of knowledge,

it’s not a matter of getting the right answers,

or scoring higher than

someone else.

I have nothing to prove,

nothing to achieve, no one to please.

 

See, the problem is,

it’s just an evaluation, an assessment,

I’m being judged, labeled, sorted

into some preconceived arbitrary box,

based on how I answer, on appearances,

on someone else’s professional opinion.

 

See? The problem is …
