Poverty Vs. Education

Poverty Vs. Education

A Poem by Hollywood
"

Talking about how poverty & money affecting education.

"

Blame Poverty,

Instead of yourselves.

"It's not my fault I failed!"

Or better yet dropped out.

Blmae it on the dollar bills you don't have in your bank account.

Because money fixes everything.

Money will fix your IQ.

Your ACT scores.

Your job outlook.

 

It's bullshit.

Money is paper, an object.

The only power it has is the power you give it.

True in many ways. After all, life is an education, is it not? An inspired person can educate themselves. Libraries are free. I dig your perspective.

Many the poet that has mused upon gold. Worth nothing if a man needs water to survive, alone in the desert. Intrinsic, yes but an instrument of commerce nonetheless. We still exist in the world of bartering, but now we barter for a promise backed by nothing. Thanks for the review.

Good write--

Definitely. :D

So, I've decided that your writing is like slam poetry. I feel like it's a part of a wonderfully written speech or a great line in a play.
