Who Needs School?

Who Needs School?

Read it?  Forget it -- I'll get the video.
My calculator takes care of my math.
Don't need art, my computer has graphics.
This spell-checking program
makes spelling a laugh.
No need to write, since I got a printer.
And my preprogrammed keyboard
plays music divine.
I don't need friends,
'cause I have Nintendo.
Just don't unplug me and I'll be fine.

~Carol Diggory Shields,
from Lunch Money and Other Poems About School
