Straight As in love (poem)


The emphasis is on education we must develop the mind
Politicians proclaim, - we shall leave no child shall be left behind
Within four walls children are taught the importance of intelligence
With a high I.Q. - socially one gains highly respected acceptance

They study, they study, read their books through and through
Gaining knowledge of the system making sense of all the pooh
Their courses include a journey - way back in time
Where they claim we got our start from swinging from a vine

In biology class they learn all the functions of the heart
Excluding the love - not detected on their study chart
Psychology is required a course they must pass
For it explains in detail all the makings of an ass

I was never on top of my class when it came learning the rules
But I made straight A’s in love, - an art not taught in our schools

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
