Hello everyone… How’s it going? Still on school vs education, let’s continue where we left off. We left off telegraphing the last three lines that went;

“hard work and education will be related,

but school will probably be a distant cousin.

This is because if education is the key, then school is the lock (Points to brain as an indication to think critically)”.

If you haven’t read the prequel, please do. There is a link to it at the latter part of this page. Anyway, let’s continue.

School vs Education (Continuance)

Because it rarely ever develops your mind

to the point where it can perceive red as green

and continue to go when someone else said stop.,

because as long as you follow the rules and pass the exams,

you are cool.

But are you aware that examiners have a checklist?

and if your answer is outside the box,

the automatic response is a CROSS (pun intended),

and then they claim that school expands

your horizons and your visions.

But tell that to Malcolm X who dropped out of school

and is well-renowned for what he learnt in prison.

Proverbs 17:16 –

It does a fool no good to spend money on education.


Because he has no common sense.

George Bush, need I say more;

Education is about inspiring one’s mind,

not just filling their head.

And take this from me because I’m an educated man myself

who only came to this realization after countless nights in the library

with a can of Red Bull keeping me awake in the night till DAWN

and another can in the MORN,

falling asleep in between piles of books

which probably equated to the same amount I have spent on my rent,

memorize equations, facts, and dates right down to the letter,

half of which I never remember,

and half of which I’d forget straight after the exam

and before the start of the next semester,

asking anyone if they had the note from the last lecture.

I often find myself running to class

just so I could find a spot

on which I could rest my head and fall asleep

without making a scene.


Because that’s the only time I ever spent in the university chasing my dreams

And then, after nights with a DEAD-MIND,

I then find myself in a queue of half-awake students,

zombies, waiting to hand in an assignment.

Maybe that’s why they called it a DEAD-LINE.

And then after three years of mental suppression and frustration,

my “proud mother” didn’t even turn up to my graduation.
