Truly, I Don't Know What These People are Thinking

Rose (sic) are red, violets are blue, Common Core Standards will ensure kids can explain the literary device at work here
  1. The Common Core standards aren't particularly strong in this area, e.g., the phrase "literary device" does not even appear.
  2. In particular I don't think this is an area where existing standards are weak.
  3. Exactly what literary device is being used here anyhow?

If you'd been through what we've been through the past few years in Providence, you wouldn't have much of a sense of humor about this shit either.
