Homework as Muse

I’ve been getting heartbreaking email from students, mostly highschoolers, about the role of homework in their lives. Today, I received a refrigerator magnet poem from Becca, a 17-year-old eleventh grader from Bainbridge Island, Washington:

I am not motivated in school
make good grades
do homework
complete work
accomplish, study, test
College?
NO!
my love is imagination
