Teaching Fail, a poem
This was inspired by a conversation I had a few days ago with a former student…
We try to teach, but the TV has got ahead of us,
The advertisers are two steps in front,
And the screens seem indeed brighter than the sunshine.
Paving paradise might be permitted after all;
Not for a parking lot, but yes for a shopping mall.
