Not Me


Tonight my teacher said reading poetry was hard and
Unpleasant and it’s one of the unpleasant things
We must do to get through school.

This man is an instructor of logic.
He compared his science to the art of words,
Went on and on so passionately absurd

In his attempt to make proofs more appealing.
I stayed unyielding but silent– I didn’t say
Poetry is beautiful and it helps us feel life.

He said logic can help us hear politicians lie and
Help us spot bullshit in the news. We can use it
To outsmart people with no common sense

Like the ones who need him to help themselves see.

Say something!
