Nicky Morgan – career advisor

“art holds you back”
constrained, caged, compartmentalised:
dead-end, zero-hour contract existence.

“study useful subjects”
science, technology, engineering:
pointless luxury: culture, humanities

how can you evaluate
happiness, transcendence, joy
in terms of asset management?

not quantified, boxed-in, trammelled
imagination soars – unconfined
by assembly lines; instructions do not apply.

how much poorer would we be
without ecstasy illimited?
put down, downcast, downbeat, dumbed-down, downtrodden

masses, who have courage to ignore advice
of  so-called betters; privately educated Tories
spreading bile and ignorance?

with our libraries closed,
sixth-forms shut
what can we do?

we dare to dream,
we dare to fight,
we dare to win
a fairer world.
