School and the Mind

Location

There is hatred in the student

Who does not like to learn

Yet the teacher does the teaching

To make the hatred burn

 

Setting fires ablaze with lecture

Creative thoughts are lost

Standardized testing is the norm

We seek knowledge, at what cost?

 

Knowledge does not equal wisdom

Which we will never find

Our destination is fading

Creativity going blind
