About Love


The teacher for religion examines the pupils.
'What is love? ' giving them marks accordingly:
'excellent', to the wealthy and pompous pupil,
'poor', to the needy pupil who talks in brief.

Below sun nothing can be kept as secret.
During the break, the teacher amazingly sees
the wealthy boy aside enjoying his cakes,
the poor pupil sharing a bagel with a poor girl.

Willy-nilly the teacher took a lesson himself,
so now he teaches the class using other words:
'Love is the blind who can see through,
is the lame who can run a marathon,
is the deaf who can hear as Beethoven did.”
The teacher sees love to breastfeed Culture
even with her pale and sunken chest..
