No More School!

My Physics textbook talked about the future when schools might be turned into amusement arcades and children would learn from an on-line source instead. The exercise suggested to write a letter to a local MP for or against the idea, or to write a poem. This is the poem.  


No more school!

We’re all sitting around,

Staring at the ground,

They all want computers;

They think they’ll rule the world,

They haven’t seen what could be unfurled-

Robots will ruin us,

That’s clear enough to see,

And, in fact, not what’s bothering me;

Just don’t send us to boot camp,

No way not at all,

We’d rather be going into school.

The End
