Teacher, Leave Them Kids Alone

O Sage, if thou my Teacher be,
Bring me all thy Humility.
Seize not my hand to lead me home.
But show me a Path, that I may find My way,

A Sage prays

"A guru gives us himself and then his system; a teacher gives us his subject and then ourselves."

William's Whimsical Words:

Pink Floyd had it right.

Pink Floyd - The Wall

  We don't need no education
  We don't need no thought control
  No dark sarcasm in the classroom
  Teacher leave them kids alone
  Hey, Teacher, Leave them kids alone
  All in all it's just another brick in the wall
  All in all you're just another brick in the wall
