creation does not stop at conception

An amazing post from today’s prompt…true to the bone.

creation does not stop at conception

this is an actual emergency
not a test
there will not be a test
no test that compares students with the rest
no comparisons just colors and clay
paintbrushes and pastels
once ripped out of their hands
that stopped clapping
stopped tapping rhythm sticks
all because of the greed of our government saying
schools do not need the arts
if they can not read
let’s make them sheep
white
fluffy
brainless
give them enough education to become slaves
otherwise they may run for office
make a difference
paint murals on the walls of city hall
congregate as a choir
where every voice is heard
lifted
muted are the children who are truly gifted
leaving us not them…left behind

we can rewind
give them hope
paint the hallways with rainbows
give their instruments
back
brushes
books
voices
back
teachers with creative lessons
back
life experience
back
dare should anyone say it
