Make a difference?

mom went to Seattle

they said it was because
the hospital in Bellingham
isn't big enough

and now i'm supposed to sit 
in a too small desk and listen to
a teacher talk and talk and talk
about manifest destiny,
or habitats and ecosystems
or, worse yet,
variables, equations and functions

as if i believe
any of this stuff will make 
a difference in my life
