I wonder if this will be on the test;
The wooden horse we buried in the sand.
We left his head out so he could see: is that answer a, b, c, or d?
Should we be worried if it's none of the above?
Or that we didn't show our work?
Or that our percentile is too low or high?
How about extra points for the times we failed although we really, really tried?
For this we didn't need a strategy -- making a wooden horse into an island.
A friend just stood at the top and pumped.
And water played it's game down to us; we dug and dug and dug.
We took turns, and helped, and made some plans;
We filled one another's heads with games and names;
We repaired and prodded as what we did became something else,
And yet something else again.
We did what we did, and we gave it our best.
Why isn't that ever on the test?
