Educate Me - Poem by Jacob Arden
"To be or not to be? " Is that the question we ask?
English literature and Shakespearean soliloquies,
I know all about the educational system.
You believe what you want to believe.
What the eyes see and the ears hear, the mind believes,
I know all about the misdirection.
‘cos you see what they make your eyes see.
So don't try and mislead me with your false deceptions,
I know all about the aetiology of fallacy.
Sir! Yes sir!
I'm not a soldier for a system, but I still send my salutes.
I try to be a soldier for the Revolution.
Nuking an entire city, like Obama said:
"You'll never see it coming" Drones!
I try to understand this half African brother.
"By the people, for the people…"
Democracy, tell me when it all works
I think, I am living in one! ! ? ?
Where is the slave master?
Surely you mean the NATO soldiers?
I think, I can tell the difference! ! ? ?
Capitalism, Socialism, Communism…
Never knew coins can have more than two faces? !
I guess anything can be possible.
Religions dictate morality.
Tell me about the Rights and Wrongs,
I guess it comes from the imaginary?
World Bank, IMF, EU…
Never borrow to spend beyond your means.
I was born to be one of them, The 99%
Money driven world, the True Religion.
Corporations and Bankers Bail-outs.
I was born not to be like them, The 1%
Knowledge and enlightenment.
But how do you Educate?
I really want to know? !
So I ask you Sir,
Can YOU guide us all to those answers,
Because I REALLY WANT TO KNOW! ! !
