Back to School 2020

“Everyone is going to be annoyed at first,” said the journeyman.

He knew, school in a virtual setting, after a summer away,
Well, people were going to be pissed off.

As they say, “Better than being pissed on,”
Unless you like that kind of thing,
Which is outside of my comfort zone,
But let’s get back to the journeyman.

He knows, rightfully, that people don’t do great with change,
Especially something as stagnant as school,
Where heavy textbooks are still the norm,
Compliance, coercion, and control rival the ABCs, and
The day still resembles a time clock punching work shift.

“Everyone is going to be annoyed at first,” said the journeyman.

“Not just the kids, though,” answered the master of the shop.

He knew, teaching in a virtual setting, after a career of pen and paper,
We’ll, it was quite and adjustment.

As they say, “Don’t be a dinosaur,”
Meaning, “change or die,”
Which is inside my comfort zone,
As I am the master of this shop.

I know, rightfully, that change can be a shock,
Especially in something as institutionalized as school,
Where the routine steals a soul,
Laziness, avoidance, and blame rival strong work ethics and
The day looks like whatever level of acceptance a person places on it.

“Not everyone has to be,” said the master of the shop.

“It will be what we make of it. Make it better.”
