AugPoWriMo 8

With every day that passes I wish that
All there were for me to worry about
Was the dysfunction in my brain making
Me believe my students were terrorists
Planning to destroy the United States
Even as they wrote about the crazy
Candidates running for the president
I remember spending a whole dark day
As I rewrote their final assignment
I woke up thinking decades had passed by
And as they brought me to the hospital
I checked my email for the late papers
I would never get any chance to grade
Written about the world depression made
