Special Educational Needs

busy classroom

You sit me on a chair that hurts
In a classroom full of noise and light
You put a pen in my wrong hand
And tell me that I have to write

You speak in terms that don't make sense
You write in symbols I can't see
You talk to everyone at once
You talk to everyone but me

Odd

Neurotypicals
Seem odd because they can't see
The trees for the wood
