Tainted Inspirations

Young and fresh creative ideas
Spread each one about a page
Ready to show the ones who;
Inspire, encourage-… Filter, funnel, narrow.
A calculated average of grades.
Different style won’t earn enough marks
So stunt that inventive new way of thinking
Go back to the old follow the same steps as everyone before
No one ever gets bored of the same
If you want to achieve these are the steps that work…
Wrong wrong wrong!
How to fix it?
Attend a mundane four hour speech
Preaching do this do that don’t do this don’t do that
Blackening over any glimmer of alternative thought
