Teacher's Strike

schools out
for a long time
young adults, adolescents
struggle to understand
the meaning behind the wall
that has been erected
between us and them
full of rage and set ablaze
set upon us, who let them sink
all they wanted was to swim
and the beginning of their end
marked by strife
that will be the story of their life
the place that was sacred
now a battle ground
where youth and virtue
have been given the guillotine
of fair wages versus corporations
why should they have the audacity of hope
when all those who lead
fall down and then cry at the microphone
tears are the new black


The society that doesn't value education is destined to need more police and courts and jails.
