A Fresh Graduate With A Scholar Tag


The fresh bread out of the oven,
May smell good, but has to be toasted.
The fresh graduates out of the universities,
May look smart, but have to be experienced.
What knowledge that can be obtained,
Reading through these heaps of books?
What intelligence that can be settled,
Doing all these assignment and paper work?
How efficiently that we are molded,
Attending those seminars and half baked workshops?
How out of world scholars are we,
When the lay man on the sites call us fools?

    Excellent poem. I left school entered the world and was shocked about how little I knew of life. Experience is the way to attain true wisdom. Thank you for sharing yours with the world. (Report) Reply

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
