EDUCATED ILLITERATES
What joy is there
when one-eyed King suffers from
glaucoma?
what can make a game fair
If the judge is from platitude far?

What a joy it is
being ruled by an educated illiterate! Glib they're like mother tortoise
displaying their false pleasant phiz,
masses they bring to noise
hoping to make subterfuge fix
For they're but host
thronged with educated illiterates.

Six,six, four they take educational meal
with zeal, with passion.
Extreme they go with the meal
obtaining qualification of umpteen
degrees.

One,two and three they appear longing,
aspiring for the place of extreme bow,
and we with joy wait for gold;
creating mole out of an anthill,
hoping for action from effigies.

On and on they go
publishing extenuation of all kinds
having failed their entire race
safe danger out there lies
with thousands of uncountable souls
who're philharmonic of troubles

Firework explodes in my head
my eyes cease not to weep
seeing the deeds of Piggy illiterates
in emancipating the whole universe.
what a sheer waste of vote!
a painful mould of unrequited love.

Degree marks not knowledge
Education ensure intelligence not
completely
for theory is but opposite to practical:
Their deeds accentuated their degrees,
bringing a loom of doom all to the growth of our nation.
What a sheer waste of time
in building educated illiterates!
