A Spoon of Salt

A Spoon of Salt

A Poem by Michael Thrower
"

Before you read: This poem is about the general "A student" that most of us know shouldn't be in that position. The Sarah Palin of school.

"

A spoon of salt on that cut

To make the point come across

That you’re prone to pain

Just like the rest of us.

 

Oh how fancy you must be

A scholar in college

Life must be a breeze

Head of broken knowledge.

 

The only thing you’re good for

Is being a showy tool

A Know-It-All from hell

Misconception’s fool.

 

Don’t get education

Mixed with intelligence

Weak can be accepted

While strong is on the bench.

 

Opinions taken from

Common read novels

Used to breed the minds

Of illiterates baffled.

 

In the end is always a loss for defeat

So don’t try and hide, you’re a brain-deadbeat.

 

You can always redeem yourself

A screw that’s come unwind

From Paris Hilton’s mindset

To a proud One-Of-A-Kind.

Author's Note

Michael Thrower
I had in mind the type of people who base most of their opinions off of novels and "Literature" they read in school (Because God knows they don't read outside of school) such as popular books like Walden, a Brave New World, Emerson, etc. Although, I do like Emerson and Thoreau, many people in my age group (18-24) who rely on school alone to teach them everything in life (Slaves to government) really base most of their opinions from idealistic teachings like this. Not in the way they were intended for either, but in the use of rebellion and hatred. My opinion on this whole subject is: If you're going to learn something, base an opinion off of it and act with it, do it in good regards.

That's all it is. If more people chose to have a good mindset WITH their opinion, rather than hating a certain group of people (I shouldn't have to name any specific groups), then all these protests and rights wouldn't be held in so much vain.

Just my thoughts on it. Thank you for reading :)

Sweet write, I get what you are talking about, I've come across a few in college as well, these guys just walk like they own the f*****g planet but are too stupid to deal with situations they haven't "read" about. Ok enough blabbering what I'm saying is this is a great write, written very well and the message it conveys it really relatable...great write!
