Valeur d’éducation


L’ignorance coûte très cher
Mon père disait
Il faut bloquer, il faut manger les livres
La vie est une lutte,
Mais seul pour les uns du Coeur fort
Pour combattre la pauvreté
Pour soigner les maladies
Pour défendre des causes en justice
Pour combattre l’ignorance
Il faut aller à l’école
Sans aise on travaille
Toute la journée toute la nuit
Malgré les obstacles, malgré les tentations
Parce que mon père disait?
Est il très important?
Les erudits sont toujours à la recherche
Il s ne terminent jamais
La vie est vraimemt vague
Sans avoir des buts, s’informer pour la vie
Mon père disait
