‘Ignoring Secular’

Teach About Jesus! Please Do!

A sample from Book 4

 Ignoring Secular
 
demeaning the family
corroding society
dictating
educational responsibility
overshadowing parental vocality
 
secular taken the role
our children―
no longer do they grow
 
parents...listen!
retake your control
only through your soul
can your children grow
 
reject their way of school
Jesus†...your most powerful tool
make them drool
show them you're no fool
 
through Him† teach
ignore what they preach
your parent rights
there's no need to fight
 
for every christian
here's Jesus'† lesson
you're a guide to heaven
for all your children
 
teaching them at home
you're not alone
you're doing nothing wrong
 
put Christ†
back into your life
every husband
every wife
give your children
His† light
 
it is your responsibility
―against secular animosity
to teach christianity

‘Transformative Change’

Educational Reform: Nothing New Has Happened!

A sample from Book 4

 Transformative Change
 
things are done with all good intentions
there goes
america's lack of education
 
in the year 2000
the dumbing down
continued its endless round
all have lost concern
going to school
meant...all children had to learn
      
all have forgotten
it's not easy to teach―
some are hard to reach
all have forgotten
teaching's not for pay
but to help our young
make their own way
 
over sixty percent
of this destructive wick
―those in poverty
couldn't read a single lick
forty percent of the same
abandoned
this education game
their reason―
not at all lame
their teachers no longer care
their parents not willing to bear
―to graduate
why even dare
―passing each grade
wasn't rare
 
pushing them up
―better for a teacher's cup
to end this sorrow
a new scenario
for america's tomorrow
―more american children
for a faster diploma flow
president george w bush
offered a texas push
 
no child left behind
his posted sign
his slogan and promise
to quickly diminish
 
too many chiefs
―round and round
goes the wreath
out went―
competition of the best
in came
a constant evolving mess
 
accountability―
a hypotheses of reality
failed quite miserably
this change―
under bureaucracy's rug
it was swept
 
parents having a right―
their child's mind
still behind
to a new school
they're free to go
this conceptional insight
in texas―
proved right
 
from 1994 to 1998
58 to 76 percent
―third graders
even with their grade-level line
proved bush's advocate
improved
school management
 
america's liberal kite
―their dumbing down bite
wedged their fight
 
endless control
endless laws
they sank their claws
getting their way
no matter
how many unconstitutional flaws
 
from the right to kill
an unborn child
mile after mile
idiots gone wild
without parental intervention
children can make
their own decision
straight to the clinic
abortion―right to take life
the way of hypocrites
their whining fit
 
young adults under seventeen
no more driver's license
wiping out privileges clean
before age of twenty-one
no more spirits
consumption undone
still...at eighteen
for freedom
they can kill...die
with a machine gun
 
liberals fighting to prove
before the age of twenty-one
not yet fully grown
young minds
must be given time
 
every young adult
they demand
must follow
their every plan
the diploma-for-ever-young-woman-and-man
became their cause
so here it goes
―the unseen blow
 
all those who can
―those above the slow-moving clan
forced to be equal
oh! so simple
all those
so bright―so smart
pinned down
with a liberal-halting dart
 
no child left behind
grew a different kind of vine
a simple concept
they could never accept
complication...their invention
instead of a parent decision
more controlling
by every administration
 
no more higher-order thinking
our school won't be sinking
 
federal money
will be our honey
began the lust
for higher ranking
now the threats
continued dumping down
liberals kept
just a new way around
bush's easy conception
every child will read
a forced liberal interception
the department of education
―bureaucratic corruption
forever changed america's direction
 
instead of increasing the minds of children
water-down test
we do confess
our scores
no longer in stress
teachers with high standard
once forced their students
moved constantly forward
instead of backward
with challenging assignments
single control of their classroom
instead of individual ways
doing what liberals say
 
teachers now burned
―lower your standards
slow down your pace
don't make it hard

so all can move forward
no longer I want to see
in your records

a failing grade
 
assignments not turned in
on a test...comes an f
on the teacher's back
their fault
threaten to be sacked
 
children who struggle
now are lovable
we don't want to see
them stumble

or you'll be in trouble
 
new kind of administration
teaching―
now a miserable occupation
 
now here comes
the liberal bureaucratic climax
to all this crap
the intelligent...held back
 
for the mentally challenged
we now clap
teachers stabbed in the back
no more play

at age three
school every day
gone school-yard recess
lunch now
a disciplining quest
 
equalism―liberal fascism
their hidden sarcasm
turned bush's
no child left behind
into an american education crush
 
their dumbing down scheme
moslem ideology
lurking behind the screen
thrives
as american freedoms
slowly die
leaving all
asking why

‘To Save a Few’

Educating the Young: The Struggle Is Real!

A sample from Book 4

  To Save a Few
 
students we teach
―just want to guide them
set them assail
so they’ll flourish
never fail
but like a wooded trail
their path is blocked
their doors are closed
their heads are hard as rock
giving up...too lame
staying...sane
 
they’re from a flock of
I don’t give a damns
coming to a world of
I don’t understands
to help them is a curse
to ignore them...worst
 
you think you get in—
only an hour
they’re in your den
 
then they’re set loose
they’re heads’ in a noose 
 
if we could see
above their anger
wipe away all the danger 
 
if only to save a few
to wake up again
to the morning dew

‘World Trade Center’

It Isn’t Just About Subject Matter!

A sample from Book 4

 World Trade Center
(Written September 11, 2001...the day it happened)
 
I don’t know much
all that financial stuff 
assumingly wall street
determines economy
burnt...crushed
what now
do they store records
someplace else
are they going to have to search—
a thousand shelves
are there companies
around the world
to figure out
all that wealth
 
what about they
aren’t the best
the brightest
of this finance world
at play
working
in the world trade center
every day
 
these buildings totally destroyed
all those lives
all that knowledge gone
what did survive
 
did they have a day-care center
did they sound a speaker
how many children were there
how many babies didn’t fare
burnt...crushed
what about ladies expecting theirs
burnt...crushed
what about the young men
not yet experienced enough
in life to care
their mothers waiting there
what about the elders
who hadn’t jotted down memories
that were rare
all that knowledge
burnt...crushed

A First-Year Teacher’s Experience

A sample from Book 4: Exert From Chapter Three

[Book 4 was written in 2007-14.] A First-Year Teacher’s Experience. I was shown my classroom right off the bat. It was big but the teacher I was replacing left me nothing. Did you hear that? Nothing! There was a filing cabinet full of stuff—five drawers of it, and I had to go through it all.

Don’t Be Baffled By Today’s Politics!

A sample from Book 10

I don’t see why because they have been telling you how they are for years. I’m not as into the politics today as I was years ago. Things just seem to keep going in the down direction, and there’s way too many people arguing instead of doing.

I know in my own home the argument over politics was huge. Being in a mixed relationship didn’t help matters as all this black/white issues took center stage. I have never been a racist. I’m not privileged. This seemed not to register with my ex-boyfriend. It saddens me on how many people believe this B.S. There are many people who believe they are privileged. I’ve seen them. I’m glad I’m not one of them. What follows is part of the Introduction to my last book on politics, Book 10, in My 12-Book Series.

Don’t Fix What Ain’t Broken!

A sample from Book 4

That was my question as I went through year after year of constantly starting over as a teacher. Yes, there’s things broken with the American education system…but they are constantly trying to fix the wrong things.

The following is from the Introduction to my 4th Book in My 12-Book Series during my denial stage where I focused on everything outside of myself and my home instead of focusing on the important stuff. What I discovered will amaze you! The only thing I could do was write a book about it and offer simple solutions to what the higher-ups makes so complex.

Reading American History In Rhyme!

In order to understand what it means to be an American you have to actually study American history. The following is from the Introduction my 3rd Book in My 12-Book Series. As I stated below, this wasn’t my intention, but we do follow the path that God sets for us.

“How do we confront our past without destroying our own selves in the process? Just like the next person, we want to deny what we’ve done and move on without ever thinking about it again. But do we really come to terms with it? It is the year 2017. I’m sitting in yet another apartment. Apartment 714. It is strange. That number adds up to 12. That number can mean a lot of things like the 12 tribes in the Bible. The 12 months of the year. The 360. The chance to start fresh. A new year’s beginning.

A lot has happened in my life since this book was written. A lot has changed. Then, again, a lot remains the same.
