An infamous poison that is known to mortally wound the innocence of any elementary schooler exposed to it over a period of 2-4 years. It became tragically popular throughout the western world during the 20th century, and now many of its victims can be observed, while others lie in the grave after their middle-school induced suicide.
Ingredients in this heinous concoction include: hormones, stress, tests, social awkwardness, bullies, questionably edible food, questionably sane practices, and distant teachers.
To prepare a dose of middle school, mix these ingredients to 300 degrees Fahrenheit in your local district until it takes the form of a large, dull-brick building.
There goes Rick. Poor child. Someone poisoned him with middle school, its like his happiness has rotted away.
