The Educator


You, with your machines and your smart boards
and your computer applications;
Designed to measure thoughts, ideas and
chart them; so originality
can be crushed under the volume, mass,
weight of a perfectly crafted graph
of human souls

  1. The Educator will soon be an AI “teachbot” that will know every metric available about your children as they learn…. don’t fret. We will save money and feed the greater “beast” of conformity and indoctrination. Your poem resonates strongly for me as I watch my kids struggle with handwriting… but will handwriting get them a job in the 2020s?
