Educate

There is the minor matter

of schooling.

Aunt has arranged all that.

The starchy uniform pinches.

I can’t face the prospect

of new friends. But Aunt

believes in education.

Betterment through study.

Our new school has a Latin motto,

it smacks of privilege.

It translates as some encouraging

goody slogan, pure hogwash.

I make the brisk walk

from the promenade

to the school gates.

My headache has come on.
