Well, I am not saying that we should remain ignorant savages, but really wonders whether any of it is really relevant for our daily lives. How many of us can remember high school/college math, science and even use that knowledge to teach our own kids?
What good is our education?
if it condemns to a life of servitude
We are equipping ourselves with skills
only to steal from the multitudes
Do we study for enrichment
to revel in new discoveries
Or are those skills only meant
to reward financially
Do the laws of newton matter
while you're watching the stock line
Could physics make it go higher?
could chemistry make it refined?
Do you use tensor calculus?
in your regimented daily lives
Does any of it really matter
while you struggle to be alive?
