Waste of Words - by Bob Atkinson

Waste of Words
(c)2015 Bob Atkinson
Poet

she teaches English at a school
where we recognize the game
she really understands those rules
gathering dusty accolades

no meaning deep in letters arranged
trite and stupid, beyond deranged
who cares about some forest bark
and meadows green within a park

she sends poor students out to a world
with preparation denoting fools
where could have taught ideas profound
just teases us with irrelevant sounds

now, in open season for
those who profess our nation's core
we stand firm in ready resolve
to rearrange our teaching's cause

1. Bring forth a logic sensibly arranged
2. Purpose, number one in stage
3. Wade through the nonsense presented thus
4. Bring serious discussion toward the front
