I write what I feel…

What Right



What right have we

To be self-satisfied?

Do we really want our offspring

To be mirrors of ourselves?

Is it good enough for them ~

The best of us, or the worst of us?

We train our children to think

IN the box ~ or not to think at all!

Don’t rock the boat!

No freedom of thought ~

What a blunder ~

Farting against thunder!

Education is just masturbation

Stroking your ego for a job not done.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. I have to give this the five star treatment… brilliant…


  2. preach it….we def train kids not to think….or we let them think too much…i think there is a middle ground we often miss….we have to train them to think for themselves as well…and how that looks…


    • I think education has definitely gone downhill, Brian. I think it boils down to quantity over quality and this shouldn’t be the case if the internet is used effectively.


  3. We should be helping them to learn how to look at all sides


  4. Of course, local education is progressively failing to teach any thought whatsoever, whether inside or outside the box.



    After years in its jails
    I suggest that education
    Be no longer obligatory

    (Thinking through why
    A refusal of compliance
    Invites legal penalties

    Raises some less than
    Altogether comfortable
    Questions, by the way)

    There’d still be schools
    But children expected
    Not to go unless they

    Found it worthwhile
    Useful, even – God
    Forbid – enjoyable

    And teachers’ salaries
    Based on attendance
    True pupil power at last
