BURN BEFORE READING
(11/10/18)


we teach
our children
what we
were taught

as if
that education
has paid off
so handsomely
for the majority
of us

perhaps
the sum total
or our recorded
knowledge
serves
as a warning

a vast
collection
of paths
not
to take

trails
to be crossed
off
the map

we need
new ideas

better
options

maybe
we should ask
our children

perhaps
our teachers
should be the ones
taking notes

because

all evidence
equal

we really
don't know
that much
