Today, I forbade a student in the writing seminar I instructed from continuing to present his disturbing poems about demons. He responded to this by convincing nearly every other student in the seminar to write and read out loud several of his poems. FML

All it says is he can't present it? If I were another study I wouldn't want to listen To poems about demons and whatnot. The teacher never said you can't write it and hand it in.

It's disturbing to you but it probably meant a lot to the student. They usually have meanings behind their poems they worked hard on and you probably made him feel bad by stopping him expressing his creativity. That or he just watched
