A Look At Education

A Look At Education!

Oh that education!
All those foolish rules
Exams, and competition
All this stuff that goes with schools
Trying to make one guy the best
At the expense of all the others
Always separating kids
Making them foes, not lovers

All those foolish uniforms
To make each look the same.
Building bricks that make up walls
That lead to power games.
All that foolish adulation
About the size of ones IQ!!
Just building puffed up egos 
This is what they do

Reading, writing, arithmetic
We must have them, I know
But all the rest, if you ask me
Well away them bloody throw.
Give them to those who want them
And leave the rest alone
To find an education
That is their very own

We must have individuals
If this world would then survive
Yet schools produce those Zombies
Brainy but not alive.
But that’s the way they want this world
Brave new World is here
Building minds instead of hearts
And cultivating fear

May 1994
