an elegy to the late, great Robin Williams, aka John Keating in Dead Poets Society.

dead poets

The teacher, on the table, stood

(to some a block), a plank of wood

yet there stood a scribe with task

to feed those beyond mere reasoning

a calculated world we’re living in

with textbook teachings of the past

think, my friends – with majesty

within you is the test to see

dead poets, yet immortal ‘sons’

quiet though their presence be

more than words – they sing to me

and to those who live beyond

rip it out, lads – go on rip, rip some more

the man stands proud – his text decried

dismiss and you’ll be better for

forefathers land yours to refine

there’s one way forward and one way through

arise young men, well read and true

choose your course and wisely too

for poets dead live on in you.
