Humility: The key to success

Burglar proof churches,
Fenced schools,
Doors locked
In libraries and museums.
They're shut tightly with iron gates
and huge chains.
False artifacts and fiction books,
The facts are not displayed.

Every building man made are prisons.
We're all dressed in orange.
Handcuffed and mouth-muzzled,
Failure at hand,
Slavery continues,
In the silence we stand.

Water-heaters, air-conditioners,
Televisions and computers;
Who knows how they operate?
These everyone do operate.
Still we're all educated?
Are you an illiterate?
Achievements are limited.
Progress restricted!
How much more can you know?
What little can you do?

The president's a failure.
Scientists can't find cures.
Doctors weren't thought how to heal.
Lawyers have learnt ways to violates the law.
Nurses are scared of blood.
Teachers were deceived.
Criminals lead the CIS.
The devil has infiltrated the church.
That's education!

Money has devalued.
Cars are in more abundance than people are.
Banks are selling over homes cheaply.
Land has lost its fertility.
Machinery creates unemployment.
Everyone can live without entertainment.
That's success!

Poem of the Day

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
