Our Education Is Dead - Poem by john chizoba vincent

Our education is dead!
Our education is dead! !
The bedrock of our society is gone;
Who shall bury it with its weeping soul?
The wise are crying at the hall of ignorance
The Ignorance are rejoicing at the detriment of their
Foolishness, rather than weeping togther with us.



No more chalk to teach us how to rule,
But there are many beers at the bar to drink.
No more table to sit in the classroom but
There are tables for the looters to write and steal.
No more biro to write and books to read but
There are many cigaret to smoke and enjoy.
Our education is dead and gone!
Our education is dead and gone! !



Teachers are bereaved at the dungeon of Unpaid salaries,
Looters build many mansions without looking back,
Their wards are sent abroad to school whilst we dine
With the dead system they killed with their legs.
Our education is dead and gone!
Our education is dead and gone! !
Fools are clapping in merriment;
The wise are entangled in fears of the unknown.



Our messed generation care not,
When is the future for the messed generation?
The ICT systems are sagging,
The academics boards are leaking;
The professors are dead with their sagging English,
They are teaching us nothing, nothing at all!
Our education is dead and gone! !

    Because, what they are teaching doesn't educate the mind. Nice work. (Report) Reply
