"Late For Class"

Education is power my dear

Listen to the words you may hear

For your teachers are speakers

Making your ignorance weaker

Befriend your higher authority

Tell them and teach them your fantastic stories

For what is a teacher but a lifelong friend

A reason to learn more in the end

Tell me what is a life lived well

Without wonderful knowledge to give

In the eyes of a girl in the middle east

In the eyes of those who receive the least

A textbook and a pencil are the world

To any oppressed forgotten girl

One day in a classroom might make it clear

Education is power my dear.
