This land

is teeming
with students

ubiquitous
in
deed
are those who know not
what they do

demonstrating daily
how their lack
of knowledge
manifests itself
to those who study
them

as they exhibit
war
hatred
dishonesty
greed
disrespect

religiously
bickering
their ignorant
self-righteous ideologies

bequeathing
resentment
and festering anger
amongst their fellow
learners

who are seeking
a way
out of this madness

which somehow
continues to pull us in

to a maelstrom
of withering hope
and fear

reflecting a world
heard screaming
pleading
beseeching
to be taught
a better

way.
