Taught in schools – to think in lines…
Remembering numbers through helpless whines.
Becoming numb to the endless chant…
A life full of ‘no’ & ‘no you can’t’.
Wordless thoughts looking out of windows.
Dreaming this is NOT how life goes.
Breaking free from a useless race.
It’s just not real… this hopeless place.
An education is like a box of tricks.
Full of wonder & wizard sticks.
Spells are taught & memorised.
Brains are fried & paralysed.
Oh! to be taught outside the box…
Original thinking…like the wily fox.
Trained to think in unique ways –
To survive the race to the end of days.
‘Blue sky thinking’…outside the box.
Lyrical lines with the office socks.
Oh! To stop with all these boxes!
Thoughtless thoughts…full of Paradoxes.
