The NCLB mandates testing
To count the prisons we will need
Because who fail they’ll be arresting
On charges that they cannot read.
I know you’ll claim I’m pessimistic
When all I am is realistic-
There’s money for the rich folk’s schools
But why spend money on their mules?
But when the mules begin their bucking
It never even gives you pause
That you’re the reason they’re outlaws.
And tired of all the jive and shucking,
The mules know they’ve been serving time
So why not go and do the crime.
