New textbooks, sharp pencils, blue markers, clean whiteboards -
A desk-studded bird cage for parrots, well-taught.
With rote recitation of ready responses
With words they know not.
"For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was..."
"...But he who looks in to the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does."
