If You Give A Kid the Tools

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 13:24 -- obryant

If you give a kid the tools

He’ll forever thank you

He’ll be enthused by his learning

And develop a different point of view


His creative thinking will

Advance him in his learnings

With interest in making society better

And working for his earnings


He will go to college

And learn about a system

That promotes prison instead of school

And decide he’s certainly gotta fix em


His passion will surge and

He will give a kid the tools

And he’ll say

“It just might keep him in school!”
