Punishment - Poem by Jerry Abrahamson

I just love the fact
That I will get punished
For being good at something
Like I did something wrong

I love it when
They tell me that
I can't do something
Because I have no education in it

Why don't they just lock me up
And throw away the key
Like I'm some vicioous criminal
If they want to punish me

    Very good point. I do not think a lack fo education shoukd be a barrier to opportunity, (I am educated to do many things.I can't do any of them) (Report) Reply
