Not completely on topic but I went with the flow...

Day by day I learn
Yearning always for the answer
Each morning prompts a question

Close the door again
Lessons do not linger long
Drink the knowledge while it flows

Daylight conquers simple thoughts
Darkness clouds the mind anew
I brought a flashlight

Today is my lie
Tomorrow is my reason
The semester starts

Answers come easy
When my mind is opened wide
Understanding seeps


Buy your books for class
Or the seats will be empty
Even with full hearts

Sit in simple rows
Sleeping behind open eyes
Wakened by the bell

Tomorrow opens
Though yesterday is long past
The lesson is now

Bring your woes to me
I'll eat them all for breakfast
Thinking them all through


School has long since past
Fading in the wake of all
Knowledge never dies

College is for birds
Pecking at the words thrown out
I prefer burgers

I beg you not to
Chalk your name where cliches sigh
Let me respect you

Teach me something new
Don't borrow from what's left here
Illustrate the wind
