EDUCATION by Don L. Lee.

I had a good teacher,
He taught me everything I know
how to lie,
cheat, and how to strike the softest blow.
My teacher thought himself to be wise and right
He taught me things most people consider nice;
such as to pray,
smile, and how not to fight.
My teacher taught me other things too,
Things that I will be forever looking at;
how to berate,
segregate, and how to be inferior without hate.
My teacher’s wisdom forever grow,
He taught me things every child will know;
how to steal,
appeal, and accept most things against my will.
All these acts take as facts,
The mistake was made in teaching me
How not to be BLACK…
