"Plain Truth" by Joe DiMino

There is no injection
for education—
never will be;
it requires
attending school
with desire
to learn
and willingness
to be taught—

there is no amount
of money
that can cure poverty—
those refusing work
will always be poor
no matter how much
is given them

there is no substitute
for a mother’s and father’s
loving presence—with
positive reinforcement,
emphasis on
why one can
and not why
one cannot….
