A Poem about College

Some teachers embody violence,
completely and terribly,
attacking the mere innocent human lives,
that sit before them,
yearning to learn something.
Student lives,
trying to figure out the right way to exist.
How to find happiness, success, and contentment in their futures.

Some teachers have it down to a science,
a way to cause violent disruption,
and radical revolution within.
By logically chaining together
the rare, evil, and harsh circumstances of the world.
They claim that the worst thing
is to not know the truth.
Their truth,
is revolution.
And they say that the worst thing is to live in ignorance,
in contentment,
something they are proud to never have known.

Rationally, they explain these crushing circumstances,
they cleverly hide their intentions,
their desire to be remembered,
and not lost amidst the minds
of the world's current and future leaders.
To be mentioned.
Memories marked by a blood stained
thesis statement.

They'll tell you to start swimming,
start swimming or else you'll drown.

You're a wage slave,
and so are your parents.

All the while,
the students know,
that if they stick around long enough
to learn how to argue against
such a brutal world view
they will find the victory
in their vocabulary of hope
that will be forever stronger
and win over in the end.

And the world sings out in gratitude,
and honors it's noble teachers.

A Watered down Rant and limp Generalization about College Faculty

link .....take me back....... I got my sheepskin back in the early eighties, beautiful young women and boozy nights fill my memory. I dreamed of greatness and found much sadness. I cried in whiskey and laughed with herb. Laughing more now than cry in, because I now know that its all absurdity and don't fear dying. So I surf the COSMIC wave and don't exactly know where its gonna take me but I know that it'll be where I needed to go. PEACE.

College is another way for the Federal government to control the people via debt. College is nothing more than a place to train fresh minds to believe what people in authority say. Sad really.
