I Want To Learn

Everywhere we look

Somebody has a book.

This book is a portal to learning,

A thing many of us are earning,

Through our everyday lives.

Buzzing around like bees in their honey hives

On a college campus

Learning just how to be us.


I want to learn.

But an education I must earn,

Through the bills and the classes

And those teachers that might really be--in  need of glasses.

But here on this campus I will learn.


I want to learn

About the engineering of the World

How things big and small are hurled

How to better the earth

And explore new turf


This is what I want to learn

But the education I must earn
