Verbatim

With all of their 'knowledge'
And quick access to 'facts'.
Very few express wisdom.
With a common sense attached.

They can quote verbatim,
From anything.
And make one think,
Others lives are insignificant.

They will tell anyone they have graduated,
From three colleges and have five degrees.
And how they had job offers...
To teach at prestigious academies!

And I'm listening to this and wondering,
With their skills 'why' aren't they displayed?
There are more fools with noses in books today...
And those who brag about what they've got!
Some may have an understanding of humanity!
But most who are knowledgeable...
Have to be shown how to connect obvious dots!

Observing the results,
Of what has been accomplished.
I ask myself 'why' am I so astonished?
Why are my expectations so high,
For these imbeciles!

They're not wasting away my retirement funds!
'Cause I 'Ain't got none.

'That's right I said ain't!
Now turn around and mind your business...
And finish that comic book! '

Schools fill these minds with garbage,
To fulfill senseless needs of a failed society!
And building upon ignorance...
Provides the evidence!
