What Is Needed Most Right Now - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
'That number multiplied by itself
Is no further than the previous number
Added to it!
Five plus six is eleven, right?
Add eleven onto 25 and you have 6x6!
Or subtract eleven from 36 and you will have 25! '
Why isn't mathematics taught that way?
In our schools?
'It would start an avalanche of thinkers...
And what is needed most right now,
Is a supply of more gullible people!
And 'that' we seem to be losing ground on.
That is becoming low in supply...
And ignorance spreads like wild fire!
WHO is subduing the process of thought?
They are 'not' doing a good job at that at all!
And that is the message we want to send!
Critical thinking is not in demand.
We must create fresh beliefs
Before we lose the land! '
You lost me with this one!
Wake me up for recess!
