It's used to feed the mouths


Of babes and cads and louts


It's used in feeding troughs


To hand the knowledge out


It's made of wood and metal


And found in gardens too


But really just a lever


To make them pay their dues


Let's put the bright up higher


And push the dim down low


For none deserve to prosper


Who cannot make a show


Of knowing things important


And how to add, divide


Sowing seeds of knowledge


And feeling dead inside
