Are we becoming talking books?
Knowledge is power, they say,
If knowledge is all that a book has,
Isn’t becoming one what we are doing?
Mugging things the way they are
And that’s how we got this far
Ask me anything and I know the solution
French revolution or Human evolution
Nothing beyond the book I learn in school
They say I am intelligent but no, I am just a fool
What’s up with this creativity and imagination?
And sometimes I ask what’s wrong with this nation
Taking it in and breathing it out
Is that what learning has become now?
What happened to creating and making and exploring?
Now I am just a girl with the knowledge of the book
I know about the world yet nothing I know
Talking book, is that what we have become?
