Emotions etched on the back of the mind

A balance between teaching and learning

Delivered over Cultural lines

Powdery white lies turning

Overstated truths projected through the eyes

Egos interrupt the quality of time

with lectures of prestige and statistical lies

unaware pupils unconcerned and blind

Feet tapping and teeth grind

Holiday dinner in a family disguise

Notebook answers rehearsed and refined

For an uncles politics and an aunts wine

Unspoken deaths screech through the time

The drunk, jolly or angry divide

Book bags of memories of a childhood of mine.
