Education?

Four syllables as someone in yellow pants walked backwards holding a cup of coffee
lines are long and the way people think they are going to save the world is short
couldn't you teach and know that you are making the difference you want to be
that would be marvelous and perhaps they would marvel and approve and approve
learn how to be a citizen and dutifully do as you are told so that you can tell and tell
that sounds like the life, no pirating or freedom or other opiate analogies 
so go to school, not west, and sit, don't jest, be here and the now, sitting on how.
