Ode: Stamps

1

A child prances across the grass,
From the sky,
Stamps rain down gracefully.
The child will be stamped,
Like a letter, to be sent off,
To somewhere it did not choose.

2

The human will go through the institution
On the conveyor belt of manufactured education,
Out will tumble a bail of well-graded mediocrity,
While stamping bad grades
On that which is not limited by its limits.

3

On a new dawn
Will walk a Child,
In a new label-less world.
