Yearn to Learn

They teach me how to summarize,
To paraphrase and symbolize


They teach me of what came before,
Of kings and gods and peace and war


They teach of camels, cats and crabs,
And microscopes which help for labs


They teach me how to calculate,
Of squares and lines, both curved and straight


But oh how all this bores me so,
For what I really yearn to know


Is how to love, to find what’s sweet,
To live a life that’s deemed complete


Teach me to discover passion,
And all the thrill which I’ve imagined


Don’t teach me what’s of your concern,
For this I do not yearn to learn
