How do you expect to teach
If you don’t try to listen
You ask for our opinions
You ask for our thoughts
When we answer passionately,
Our answers are wrong. Permanently wrong.
You don’t understand us
You assume. Always assume.
Since when have people’s opinions been wrong?
Since when have teachers become dictators?
You act so superior, as if your life is more important
And here we are, listening to your yammering
Wanting to have some respect, and be treated as equals
You would be surprised on how willing we are to learn
You would be proud of how much knowledge we’ve already acquired
Of course, that would be if you actually knew us at all
If you actually heard our voice,
You would realize
Are the better teachers
