I dreamed I stood at the gate to hell,
And watched the sculptors there,
The clay they used was children’s souls,
And they shaped it without care.
All were teachers, the tools they used,
Were shouting and verbal abuse,
And all of those teachers subjected those souls,
To ignorance and misuse.
Day after day the teachers toiled,
With a brutal and practised touch,
While all of the little souls’ parents thought,
Their children were learning so much.
And as the souls were tortured,
In hell’s burning, hungry fires,
Some became angry and violent,
And developed perverted desires.
Most became sad and then sadder,
Some shrivelled and died in pain,
While others grew up to be sculptors,
Their spirits to regain.
And I wondered, while I was dreaming,
Why others could not see,
That damage caused by teachers,
Affects society …
And why we have this system,
Of teaching tender souls,
That children have to go to hell,
In order to reach goals …
A system born in days of yore,
Made from philosophies,
Of men – who hated children,
And thought babies couldn’t see …
A system from, “Utopia,”
And Mann and Jean Rousseau,
Where children, while still babes in arms,
Off to school must go.
I dreamed that I walked into hell,
And took my children out,
And when I woke found they taught me,
What learning is about.
Think back and you’ll remember,
Your children taught you too,
In days before they went to school,
When they were taught by you.
