SCHOOL DAYS
by W.A. Tyler

"Why do I have to go to school, Mum?" said Nick.

"At school you will get knowledge."

"I'd rather just live and think for myself," replied the lad.

"You'll save yourself much thinking if you learn proud things from others, like the alphabet and numbers," said Mum.

"So that's it! Well off to school I go. Good-bye."
