Poetry Month

One of my students, Charles, who goes by the nickname Skywalker sat in our writing class today and came up with a poem.  This is a student who is very good at hiding his facial emotions, unlike his teacher who shows them all.  Here is his poem.  Enjoy.

The Code

Do not show emotion, for emotion is a weakness.
Others exploit emotion and use it against you.
Keep a straight face for you may even earn respect.
do not show emotion so that others may underestimate you.
Emotion is a weakness to be exploited.

Sometimes being underestimated is a good thing.
