Minister Of Education - Poem by Kevin Patrick

The Minister of Education majored in Finance
So requires a dosser to translate her casework
Into something resembling her main occupation
In the field of Finance and not Education
Unfortunately this ignores the topic of Administration
For something the Minister is more familiar
Such as keeping the numbers to minimum levels
Translation: more cutbacks in public school spending

When the Minister of Education proposes legislation
She uses her staff to speak to representatives
Who know nothing related to the field education
So they look to the Minister for informed reflections
As she looks to the Prime Minister to tell her what to do
But the Prime Minister did not major in Finance
Instead he employs her knowledgeable for assistance
Translation: she reads the Prime Minister a dictionary of education

So everybody pretends to know what they are doing
When they are not doing it.
Representative Democracy

Besides
What would be the point
In appointing
A person
With the skill sets
-criteria
-talents
-dedication
Into a position
In which
They knew
what they were doing?

That would be
.........
To Efficient
