Just Give Me an A and Tell Me I’m Great

or, if you have the ability,
erase the memory of that
education that trained me
to take the treat in the maze
and find the next corridor
press the next button
and look for the next biscuit
a terrible minotaur that does not
kill its victims, but traps them 
for all time in the feeling of
its puzzles, even when the problems
are not on worksheets anymore
