The Mush Hole Rubric


(To the memory of the Kamloops 215 little ones)

Having been administered
a psychological caning
and made to feel among
“The Other,”
in our own homeland.
Citations not quite in order
Not fitting into the paint
by number
linear boxes
Regurgitating the same old
same old

This is how you will
surely lose marks

Such are the metrics
of compliance
and obedience
