'Edu-Mac-Cation' - Poem by Michael Micmac Mccrory


I am going back to school to finish my education
Something, I should have done forty years ago
Will I succeed this time around?
Oh dear, I very much hope so

I have tried several times before
Somehow, I always failed
Couldn’t concentrate, hadn’t the patience
Think it’s time I got it nailed

GCSE’s in Maths and English
I have to follow those paths
Not so bad at English
Bloody useless at Maths

That was when I was in school
All of forty years ago
I was jack the lad back then
Now I really want to know

I know it has been coined before
Now, I believe it to be the truth
What some clever person said
Education is wasted on the youth
