Notes from the Miseducation

29/11/2021

So I was just writing about
being caught up in love and the game
getting hooked and strung out
getting sober and finding out
that neither of us is to blame
that loving and in love are not the same.

So I was just writing about
how we rode heroine to get by
numbing our pain away like a flood
chasing the dragon in our blood
some of us did it to get high
some of us did it to die

So I was just writing about
this time I mixed lemon with tequila
and performed kind acts of service
with a girl who had a tattoo of a chrysalis
on my way to a church during easter
yeah, sometimes i’m a bad believer

So I was just writing about
lessons I learnt from Ms. Hill’s miseducation
it shed light to some responsibilities i had shirked
and I admire the intricate beauty of her work
speaking with a voice verging on pure perfection
unsullied wisdom directed to all generations
