Unneeded teaching


Teaching me what the square root of x is

who founded the lands of America 

and the latest novel is unneeded.

Teach me how to become a doctor 

not about inequalities, vectors or venn diagrams

that shit won't help me when it's time to get on the job. 

I need to know how to be successful in the real world

how to budget my money and balancing a check book.

Reading books and taking quizzes aren't going to help me

 my future will be so complicated because you filled up my brain with 

unneeded teaching. 

That's why students dropout because you are getting straight to the point

too much of that unneeded teaching.
