Justin Li // TO TEACHERS

Dear teachers,


Don’t give us homework over vacation.

And don’t make it due the Tuesday

after we get back.

Do not give us a week long project

and say we can simply do it on

Monday, not over break.


Don’t take away the valuable time that I get to spend

with my visiting relatives.

Don’t take away the stress free days of vacation,

the days where sleep is an option.


It is not funny,

and you risk being compared to

a person’s hindquarters.
