                                        teached
                                 in the ass

        whatever happened to that
                public service
        premised on the creation and giving to
                ways to let others see
        that its management ends by saying
                we cannot all do
                what we want?

        whatever happened to that
                public service
        that proclaimed its strength of body
                by pooling expertise
        that its management ends by saying
                we have no money
                to do it?

        whatever happened to that
                public service
        host and guardian of the noble exchange
                that picked up in every classroom
        that its management ends by saying
                it’s not that simple
                we have to jump through hoops?

        whatever happened to that
                public service
        that grew its own high-windowed
                infrastructure
        that its management ends by saying
                it’s just not what
                the school needed?

        whatever happened to that
                public service
        that plotted the child’s cognitive development
                through each and every curriculum
        that its management ends by saying
                it’s all a matter of
                parent’s perception?

        whatever happened to that
                public service
        that took the tumblings of a child’s play
                and measured their trajectory
        that its management ends by saying
                I have to ask the question:
                does it improve results?

        whatever happened to that
                public service
        that pivots on the craft and poetry
                of communication
        that its management ends by saying
                I am the Principal
                I can do what I want?

                        there is no good rejoinder
        to this song
                there is no end
                                to lost
