Be A Good Student - Poem by Ronell Warren Alman

Be a good student
Learn as much as you can
Always be willing to grab education
For the time is at hand
Study your books
And strive to be the best
Focus on your studies
And be a cut above the rest

    ok, i've read the comments. i still disagree about pushing excellence in the faces of those who can't be or don't care to be 'the best'. some kids may be harmed by such advice.

    i'd at least temper the advice with the little words ' that they can be', or 'that they want to be'.

    AND there are other ways of being successful other than with excellent grades and a college degree!

    i think schools and their students could do well to 'teach' civility, honesty, and brotherhood (or at least tolerance) . but i think the grading would have to be pass/fail OR maybe no grading would be better; yes, no grading. everybody passes if they attend.

    well, i bet a lot of others will buy into THIS advice, but i'm not inclined to buy it.

    i suppose a lot of successful people have followed the route you suggest, and it may have caused a lot of 'good' in the world. but...............probably not always. and plenty of 'good' comes from those unable or not interested in being a cut above the rest.
