Mirror mirror on the wall,
Who is the most deceptive of all?
A lovely child I see.
Rags cannot hide her innocent face.
Alas, she is more honest than thee.
Lips red full of questions filled with curiosity.
Hair speckled with creativity.
Skin colored with diversity.
The Evil Queen
Alas! Who is this evil queen?
Who plots to feed our children apples laced with poison?
Is college and career ready truly the reason?
At first she summoned a kind hearted man,
Who disagreed with the queen’s devious plan.
The hunter loved Snow White, an admiring fan,
He spared her life, cut out a deer’s heart, into the forest she ran.
One apple will no longer suffice,
it is masses the Empress must now entice.
Children see shiney and red,
innocently eating the venom they’re fed.
One juicy bite lulls parents and educators to sleep…
