Come Ye, Empty Pots!

Empty Pots
Come ye, empty pots, stand in a fine line;
Here, I’m awaiting to smother your mind;
Oh, Master, I know master, no emotions,
No poetry, but facts, with less reasons.

Oh, Master, I know master, no emotions;
Just 2%, I’ll smother them with devotion;
Criticality and creativity are false notions;
So, illiteracy shall shine in full promotion.

No poetry, in this class, for any reason;
Oh, Master, I know master, no emotions;
Come ye, empty pots, this is not a treason;
I’ll smother thy mind for future promotions.

  1. Young minds are so vulnerable, so defenseless. Yet our children are bombarded by every sort of lie and diversion. They hear commercial jingles round the clock; are taught to imitate the trendy, and envy the rich and famous. All the while, they wander farther and farther from the truth.
