Getting Rid of Writing-without-Citing

The anti plagiarism
Software has made a schism.

Idealist writing teachers -
Those novel project preachers

Want instructors to spend time.
Giving feedback is sublime.

Most teaching anything else
Want student writing by stealth.

Though there's some who do require
Twenty pages or higher

In one end of term paper,
An idea constipator.

More frequent shorter pieces
Rather than a major thesis

For subject introduction
Or extending discussion

Ties writing to the learning
And in the process turning

Students to eager beavers
Instead of would be cheaters.
