Lesson One

Poem By Jason yun

Do we learn math to add the dead's sum?
Subtract the weak ones,
count cash for great ones?
We multiply but divide the nation.
Break down like fractions,
Send our sons away to die

Do we learn science in defiance of faith?
To make alliance with fakes
for an appliance's sake?

Do we learn to read to receive the lies to deceive the eyes
from seeing between the lines.
We use words to bring forth sticks and stones
to sing psalms of hate that fill the streets with bones.
