Toxic Con Flush

It was not a good idea, to try to con my mother,
making my math test disappear with a flush
of the toilet, which promptly backed up.
Math was toxic to me then, but
it would have been better to face it,
her wrath over a C-, maybe with a note
that said, What happened?? Better to face it
than to stand there saying, when she asked,
“What’s this?” that it appeared to be a
piece of paper of some sort, and I had no idea
what it was or how it got there, or whose it was.
