Annihilation of Education
“Indiscriminate”, it claims as it sweeps its hand across the halls.
The children of higher education plummet from high-standing lecture seating,
rolling, rolling past chalkboards, projectiles, and blistered thumbprints of an instructor who is trying not to let go.
Then the floorboards split and the students tumble through.
A lesson in physics, or another Dream Act, being nailed to the splintered door.
Tears in confidence brim the gasps of the student body, witnessing the last attempts
of a committed professor to warn the students, motioning the projectile onto the flimsy paper, wavering away, as the floor slips.
Instructor cuts; blood rimming the chamber below lecture halls, dead dreams of students, instructors, higher education to be placed below eye socket; below sight or mind of the government.
