Thank you teachers for the teachings of men
Who died long ago for their ignorance and sin.
Thank you teachers for the power to think
But I do not partake of the cup that you drink.
No thanks to teachers that give needless facts
Unless they are those that the internet lacks.
Google is a teacher of which today's young are smitten
Thanks to the teachers who teach what cannot be written.
For those who teach drivel or snivel or snot,
I still must listen, for without grades I would rot.
And in the few small things that teachers have taught me,
Some thoughts assumed true, updated to history.
I miss the time of childhood innocence
For my teachers, their teachings together make no sense.
