dear Gove, stop fucking about with education

in Poetry

I know what I mean, the me, the I, the whys and wherefores
before this moment, this decision an incision
through my own morality, or sense of it anyway.

Why stay in teaching if leaching the system
and children’s minds and hearts,
ripping apart the fabric of society?

Why create a debate? Too late for a generation,
it’s happening now, under our noses,
deposes our sense of who we are.

Because it matters, it leaves us all in tatters,
cotton blowing on the wind powered
with a shower of fear and repression.

Because the creative instinct matters,
these tatters you give us will out live us
when unity is round the corner.

Strive from a life of robotic injections
of sections of knowledge, access denied
to a free life. No. You service us.

Last week, in our local newspaper, there was a competition ‘to make as many four letter words as possible from the name Michael Gove’. What an opportunity!!!

Oh yeah! This is why I chose Waldorf Education for my child.

I am also noticing a new movement in society towards “unschooling” which I find exciting.
