The Poor Urchins

A word of caution as the alarm bell sounds, you will hear no absent cheering. But be aware some people care to flaunt social engineering. The missions clear and their goals are set to brainwash every child. Telling them what to drink and what to think with no urchins running wild. The schools are controlled by those who know and they follow it to the letter. No chips, no pop, no tater tots, all banned to make them better. They think they know and are well aware to be a child's savior. To quash the evil which seems a tad medieval to change the bad behavior. There are cameras there and video to watch the children move. The child might flunk if they show some ***** and the teachers don't approve. No spanking now or discipline to put away their fight. When the child is bad don't make him sad, just buy the kid a bike. Kids need their space... a few dark spots to call their very own. To make their mark... to find that spark before the dreams have flown. So stop your meddling and forget your madness because I've got a hunch. You will find... our greatest minds were raised on Cap'n Crunch. The End *For those who might be interested. I will be posting my cartoon 'Bob's your Uncle' on my homepage. A new one will appear every second day.

Ah, this is why I think some people choose to home-school their children. "The missions clear, their goals are set, to brainwash every child. Telling them what to drink, and what to think, no urchins running wild." Nice one!

Schools teach what to think, when they should be teaching, how to think.
