Sh*t You Cant Say to Your Teachers

I dont know how to write a check,

But thankfully I can graph a palabara.

I dont know how to cook a family meal,

But I know how many protons an Iron atom has. 

I can't decide which price is better, 

But I can tell you what an Iambic Pentameter is. 

High School teaches us stuff we need for tests.

Test that turn us into numbers, and statistics. 

And less into people. 

We are the students, the people of tomorrow. 

But how well is tomorrow looking, if we are just a number on a page?

Just another statistic, instead of a self sufficient functioning being.

Tomorrow is looking dim, it's time to brighten it up.

Teach us things we need to know, not things that turn us into statistics.
