Kindergarten nightmare

Standard

In her kindergarden class

In a higher income area

There was a teacher

She wore her white streaked brunette hair in a bun

The little girl dreamed her classmates were all in trouble

the older woman was scooping out their brains

with a shiny metal soup ladle

They still functioned

But more like puppets

She was next

but she fought back

the scoop had taken out a little bit

but there was plenty of spark left

Thankfully

Anger flared, rocket fuel

Indoctrination in youth.

…she woke up from the nightmare

Sleeping safely near her grandparents

But still angry.
