A Litmus Test

Subjecting yourself, your child
to an inadequate plan, a failure of law,
of implementation, or fiat at its worst
That we must submit, turn loved ones
over to the well-intended; but wrong
to let them suffer a failed plan
even for a day. Impossible.
That can’t be the measure of our law
the rights so long held dear
Failing FAPE without feeling
Submitting to failure
cannot be the answer
