Misleading Literacy - Poem by Ace Of Black Hearts

What is the purpose behind literacy?
It's not a question of authority in the words they speak
But instead what do they teach?
The falsification of a past history can be misleading, of this I can totally agree.
Does this mean we deny them the equal right to write.
Because they lied about their qualifications.
I have no degree, I have no money, therefore I don't get seen.
I could be the best in the world but still you won't even look at me.
So comes the defeat.
But in deceit some succeed.
To survive by being a cheat.
If I'm not accomplished some day I might just be.
If patients is given its dues.
But it is a question of who can afford to.
Those with a true virtue do.
