And the children who think that summer ends

…and the children who think that summer ends
and somehow, school and learning resume again,
who do not yet realize the lessons.

…and the parents who think their fall begun
and somehow, school and learning do not apply to those
who do not yet realize the lessons.

…and the rest of the living, breathing world
and every species that is born and dies
and knows no respite, no vacation
and wants none, having no understanding of those
who do not realize the lessons
only end temporarily, at best.
