Teachers Teach What They Will Never Know

Music: Fugue in C Major.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques

Teachers teach what they will never know,
However thoroughly they may prepare.
After all the books and lesson plans,
No test can touch the things that make us care.
Knowledge is not the choicest seed they sow.

Your devotion is a pair of hands
Offering a sculpture fierce and rare,
Unveiling a place where I must go.
