Rest of the world take note:

The language ARTS are dead

Each year they are valued less and less

They want us to teach social studies instead


It doesn’t matter that literature is life

Or that it teaches character or enriches our souls

Nonfiction is the curricula rife

Twenty-first century automata the goal


They will keep the reading and writing

But excise the content of art

The skills are all the market demands

But how will we act with no heart?
