This is hilarious! poet learned that two of her poems are being used on the Texas standardized tests in Texas.


When she looked at the questions, she couldn’t get the right answer!


Sara Holbrook apologizes to the children and teachersof Texas.


“Seriously? Hundreds of my poems in print and they choose THAT one? Self-loathing and self-hate? Kids need an extra serving of those emotions on testing day?


“I apologize to those kids. I apologize to their teachers. Boy howdy, I apologize to the entire state of Texas. I know the ‘90s were supposed to be some kind of golden age, but I had my bad days and, clearly, these words are the pan drippings of one of them. Did I have a purpose for writing it?


“Does survival count?”
