Each month, write a new collection.
Power TripIf I could change anythingIn any field in which I invest my energy in,I would have more powerIn order to have a greater influenceAnd grasp of what I loveAnd of what I want to be.
New twist to the expression! I love it.
Thank you Mr. Brantingham
No more Lectures No more droning on In excited tones while hundreds sleepBecause they’re working 3 jobs paying off their loansOr have to go home to watch their childrenOr grandparents or bothNo more talking about yourself and your lifeAnd why it matters to students whose livesAre different and having nothing to do with yoursNo more self-aggrandizementNo more insistence on the inherent importanceOf whatever it is you’re an expert inBecause you happen to like it personallywhile students gape at youAnd your notesAnd while we’re at itNo more power point which is just a lectureWith slides on a computer and fontsNo more of thatNo more podiumsNo more multiple choice testsNo more bills for studentsNo more telling students what to thinkBut instead continual asking continualNot yes or no open-ended questionsDesigning your own syllabusAnd asking always askingWhat is worth knowingAnd what else what more CanPoems Do forYou and UsWhat more can we all doWhat?More!
