Peace Be Upon Them

Peace Be Upon Them

History, English and Algebra are an exquisite delight
Don't hate me because I can read and write
Me and Ms. Dictionary have always been tight
She caresses my vocabulary every single night
Inseparable in the realm of evil and his might
We compose passionate essays by the kitchen light
Blind is a man who can't count, read or write
Dead are women who give away their sight
In the name of activist children, XY and XX 
"Peace be upon them" reads on their grave site
Education is a basic necessity, your given right
You too can pick up a pen and learn to fight

Dedicated to children's education
