What I Yearn

In class we are asked,

To find the sum or the mass,

Of topics that I'll never need.

What about doing taxes,

Or working the faxes,

Because this I never see.

Are we really learning what we need to survive?

Is this knowledge the basis of which I can derive

A greater meaning to all that I learn?

Or am I simply speaking of what I yearn?
