“When I was in elementary school
I walked three miles uphill
In two-foot snow
Bare footed
Without a coat
In the middle of July
Just so I could get an education
Then I had to walk
Five miles back home
In ninety-five degree weather
Under the blazing sun
In the middle of December”
“Dad, you lived across the road
Not even ten feet
From your elementary school”
