Public Education in Kentucky

by
John R. Secor

so you think
your apology
for saying you
guarantee a child
will be abused
or take drugs
because teachers
walk out to protest

so you think
your apology
for calling teachers
“thugs” and “greedy”
because elected officials
are violating teachers’
1938 inviolable contract

so do you think
teachers are the problem
an obstacle to corporate
welfare, an impediment
to a new world order?

so do you think
this is government
of the people
by the people
for the people?

do you think?
