Dude that’s heavy.

Baltimore city schools have tons of issues currently

7th grade students receiving 1st grade level reading and math

Incredibly subpar facilities

Money literally disappearing and cutting facilities and budgets because of it, despite Baltimore ...

And all this is topped off by massive societal and gang violence issues that happen every day in the city. Baltimore hasn't had a murder in 11 days and it's almost a three year record streak

I applaud this kid for going to class, despite the shit storm he unfortunately has to deal with

Edit: apparently its not written by a Baltimore City school student. Whatever, point still stands, Baltimore City schools are an issue

More mass than a collapsing sun.

Lazy kid needs to pull himself up by the bootstraps and work, obviously he doesn't have a parent at home! Sheesh! No work ethic, kids these days...

It’s only a small piece of wood with a thin strip of graphite inside.

This reminds me of the kids from The Wire.

Oh my bad I didn't know that. Still a great poem regardless.

That's not important right now!
