He learns from the teachers.
Men with degrees,
Something called 'life experience.'
Whatever that might be.
He speaks, writes, reads,
Based on instructions and their rules.
Missing out on their 'life experience.'

As do teachers.)

Finally,
Old.
His learning ended with a slip of paper.
He dies.
Uneducated.
