School – A Sonnet


I went to school full of hope and joy
Who could know all there is to know? Not I
Grey-haired adults my knowledge would enhance
My false assumptions they would then belie.

I was told to stand up against the wall
They gave me a number in place of name
They said I could color but dare not draw
I quickly realized we were all the same.

Teacher told me lies about history
Indians helped through the first thanksgiving
The Civil War was fought for slavery
Pledge of allegiance we were made to sing.

I asked who, what, where, when and why too much
Could not explain why two plus three is five
She said emotion was weakness, a crutch
She said shut up as I tried not to cry.

I left school, I became autodidact
I realized lies are lies, not fact.
