shouts, whispers, insists
to capture, ensorcel, the growing mind
Turn hand to fist, shake explosive arms
"It's weak to be kind"
We are killing our children (and setting up bad habits for a lifetime of illness) by insisting they sit in schools for hours on end. I have often proposed (and am not alone) dance breaks between classes.
You know what keeps people from striving to get ahead? Complete frustration. So they smoke some soothing plant to help them deal with an impossible situation -- and you oh so superior stand above and sneer.
Where have all our freedoms gone, taken like tolls?
Where have all our freedoms gone, gone to lawyers every one
or is that "liars," anti-freedom pols.
This is an issue too serious and bound up in deeply felt emotion to be sorted out by legislation. We need real dialog -- not just snipes and spite and soundbites.
