Good Pupils – Written Friday 28th August 2020 (Aged 45)

Good Pupils

people have been taught –
to blame others
and they been good pupils
eager with their homework
eager to adopt false histories
and now,
they read curriculums without fail
enjoying the false taste
of headlines in the daily mail

people have been taught
to blame others
and they been good pupils
slowly diluting compassion
and empathy
and there is little left
or it is only for those who –
they feel have the same breath
that is why they accept migrant deaths




James Garratt 28th August 2020
