High Tuition Rates

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Many perceive teachers,
To be magicians with wands.
And a child with no ambition,
Will suddenly become disciplined enough...
To enjoy the process of learning,
To eventually become wise.
Like the getting of good grades,
Teaches one how to survive.

Some parents believe schools,
Are created for this.
With no encouragement at all,
From them do their children get.
Afterall...
Few are taught that thinking,
Is an investment made.

And no one can fault those who assume.
Many who pay high tuition rates,
Assume after one graduates...
With a degree in hand,
They can declare themselves intelligent.
As if a payment for common sense,
Also applies.

'No!
The other end of the broom,
Is used for the sweeping of the floors.
Your abilities look excellent on paper.
Are you 'sure' they are yours? '
