PO-EMotion #24

April is National Poetry Month. Every year, my dear friend, and Poet Extraordinaire, Mary Lee Hahn, chooses a theme and writes a poem every day. She blogs and posts at two different places- YEAR OF READING and her fabulous new poetry blog, POETREPOSITORY.

This year's theme is PO-EMotions. Mary Lee promises, "I will write a poem a day that either evokes an emotion, or uses an emotion word in the title or body of the poem. Her list of emotions is here. I'm joining her, at least some days.

Today's emotion is distress. I have been helping administer tests for weeks (or maybe months!) and I am over it! To put it mildly!



"distress"

I detest
de mess
de duress
de stress
of dese tests!

AMEN, sister. You saw they made it in to my poem, too!

Amen! I'm not facing them this year since I left teaching, but I feel for my colleagues and their students.
