The Farsighted See Better Things

You call me demented, I call you a fool
You’ve spent the last twenty years going to school
And now that you’ve gotten your precious degree
You blame unemployment on the economy

And so you go back to your great alma mater
And end up replacing your favorite professor
You teach the same concepts and accept them as truth
Never bother to question the truths they taught you

Regurgitate knowledge and reward inhibition
For logic and change come up short of tradition
And anything learned is worth pushing on forward
To the young and the stupid to push it on forward

And oh how productive to society you are
With your head in your books and your IQ above par
I’m sure you’ll be useful when we find we need
A scholar with knowledge but nothing to heed
