Mind Recess – Quinzaine Style


Learning in a hypnotic state
Who truly benefits?
Is it my life?

We are slaves to business
Militarily trained?
Just for cash?

Fail to be called inhuman
Why do late learners cry so?
Value result?

Labelled by many test results
Is this scientific?
Biased trial?

My mind is not developed
Where do I begin?
Why can we not play?

    Learning in a hypnotic state
    We are slaves to business
    Fail to be called inhuman
    Labelled by many tests results
    My mind is not developed

    Taking the first five lines of each stanza
    about sums up the whole poem.
    And society too. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
