NOT ENOUGH POETS?


NOT ENOUGH POETS?

I suppose it isn’t “fair”

To let my opinions air…

      When THE TELEGRAM & GAZETTE**

      Takes time to target,

The crappy state of education here.

-

It wasn’t the paper’s op-ed

Officially I read…

      Just an “AS I SEE IT” piece,

      In a May 2nd (2012) release

Exposing Liberal Arts may soon be dead.

-

Municipal pots are running low,

So instead of wages—subjects have to go—

      History/Literature…no MCAS…

      If there were, it scores dead last,

Political indoctrination will only grow.

-

But this is MY opinion based on facts

Of other countries moving on similar tracks…

      Who needs poetry

      With Facebook and Wii,

Until the time “We the People ” must bare our backs!

**NOTE:  THE TELEGRAM & GAZETTE is a newspaper in the Worcester, MA, area. The article referenced is is the Wednesday, May 2, 2012, issue, under THE PEOPLE’S FORUM banner, page A14.  The article title: “Leaves of memory going dark”, by Jamie Gass.

  1. I did respond to Mr. Jamie Gass’s opinion piece, inviting him to visit us here at OUR POETRY CORNER, emphasizing that our Administrator an I, and others, do indeed hail from Massachusetts and are poets. Sure hope he does!

  2. you deserve 10 stars on this! you are correct 100% I am a very strong believer in education and right now our school systems across this great country of ours are not fitting the bill. Another reason why I went in the direction of Opinion’Nation starting Monday. I intent to cover many subjects!
