How to Educate Our Kids | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

How to educate our kids:
Woefully underfund
Public schools,
Because we don’t want
To pay taxes,
Then shake our heads
Disingenuously when
They fail and propose
Some half-baked measure
That siphons money away to
Unaccountable private companies,
Or, better yet, encourage
People to use vouchers
To enroll in private or
Sectarian institutions; then
Declare emphatically that
We’re doing everything
We can to fix things…
Except properly
Funding the schools.
