I need help on this question
I’m trying my best
But I need a suggestion
But teacher, teacher
Instead of rote memorization
Instead of formulas and dates
All I want’s comprehension
Why does the Earth rotate the way it does?
Why is the sky blue?
Why does Pi go on forever?
What is forever?
I see your bored expression
You have better things to do
But I must make a confession
If the teacher is not enthusiastic about
How can the student be expected to
Charge towards the unknown
challenge the unchallengeable
foresee the unforeseeable
and carve one’s path towards the indefinite light of the future?
You’ve lost the light of a learner
The ambition of a dreamer
And the aptitude of an intellectual
I can’t stand the droning on and on
The endless ticking of the clock
The brains not put to use the right way
The dry words on a succulent topic
You are the result of a society bent on money
The society that claims education is important
The children are the future
But spends more money on jails and prisoners
Instead of salary for teachers
Equipment for the schools
Computers and technology that students desperately require
My school quite literally
Has walls made of cardboard
Education has been sent to hell
And it is more than we can afford
