Poems of the PhD 3

Is it a “safe simulation”
To drive for excellence,
But be adverse to the risk that would guarantee it.
Teacher collaboration,
But individualism to keep people replaceable.
Opportunities to open minds and have incredible experiences,
As long as a certain percentage is profit.
As long as it fits regulation.
Teacher ownership,
As long as it doesn’t step out of bounds.
Looks like a school –
Sounds like a school –
But, perhaps, it is an illusion.
And teachers, the magician’s assistant.
