Oversight.
Scrutiny.
Critical "friends"
examine your work.

The job of 
Teaching is
different.

Our heart is there
to make each
lesson flow

to each child.
They will rip 
out that organ.

(those in charge
as the children
once were -
 of guiding
curriculum 
as professionals
should)

Bring back autonomy. 
Bring it back
or our schools

will crumble
under the tyranny.

Fascism. 


This is Poem #157 from the  Poem (almost) Everyday Project. Starting in mid-January 2016, I challenged myself to spend a year in which I’d wake most mornings and write a poem before my first cup of coffee. By the end of the year,  I had written 241 poems.  Here, I have published second drafts of  those pieces copied directly from my journal with minimal editing from their “vomit draft” state.

This seems to be one of several “back to school” poems I wrote upon returning there after the summer vacation following a very difficult year.
