Quality of Education - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2015 Bob Atkinson

hanging tough in our parade
we try our best to say we've saved
best for last, all for one
duty dunked let's move on

while in this fix of mental dumbness
we miss obligation to form and function
that simple quest for creating strength
teaching children to become their best

best in mind, best in spirit
best in goals, best in caring
best in helping another succeed
best in giving up sickness of power, greed

by caring for those who succumb
to dearth of spirit, wildness numb
that primal urge of pre-evolution
a nature of formless restitution

'tis here in open arms displayed
we earn position in life's parade
evil ejected from our minds
presents good spirits for all time

education needs reformation
not a place for confrontation
presentation only in form, function
molding adults with care and loving

not by teaching simple things
but by organization of inner feelings
let children learn and teach their friends
open scope with emerging trends

 "... formation of a virtuous character ..."
 that goal which we ignore
need be our inspiration
need be our first main chore
