We were the class of guinea pigs
Between state testing changes,
Graduation credit adjustments
We were the test dummies
A generation of advancement
Worked hard to get through the modifications
Excited to finally be in our senior year
Making our last memories
With the people who’ve been through everything with us
For twelve years.
We made it. Finally.
Ready for prom, graduation, our last finals
Unaware the last 3 months would be stolen from us
Unaware that we’d already had our last day of school
Unable to say goodbye to teachers,
Peers that we will never see again.
We were the class of change
And the class deprived of a normal senior year
