What is the difference,
Asked the educator,
Between being skillful,
Such as a prostitute,
And being educated,
Such as a teacher?
Well, replied a prostitue,
One educates skillfully,
The other skillfully educates.
Which is which?
The educator responded.
Depends, said the prostitute,
On the pay and benefits.
It feels like everything is institutionalized
But you can’t teach common sense,
Listing skills for a job application
I can’t write down intelligent
Because your level of intelligence can only be judged by others,
What you have done
someone else may have done differently,
I can’t put down open minded because
People can’t go both ways,
Except in a sexual cause
Some people tend to go both ways,
But people can only be open minded to the things they have been though
Because in the end one
Can only make one decision,
So the only skill I really have is
standing for prayer
the corner of the school desk
thrice daily finds me
flatness and hardness,
and the fluorescent lighting
it’s tuesday morning
forgive us our trespasses
and I’m told to chant
horseback riding is
a wonderful thing for girls
it builds self-esteem
trail rides through the scrub
learning skills in the outdoors
hard leather saddle
rolling, dazed, back and forth and
sweating in the heat
of slick and dewy couples
raw, tanned romance, all
in rapid Spanish
the love in Latin Lover
is jacuzzi steam
all we can do is
laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh
and laugh, and watch them
I need a man around this place
At DIY, he should be ace
If he's a plumber, it could be good
To unblock pipes, so water runs away as it should
A carpenter would ease the way
The drawer fronts all fell off one day
A sparky here could fix the light
This whole darn house is such a fright
A gardener could have a job
And perhaps a chef, to heat my hob
A cleaner would be really great
To do the chores, I really hate
The ironing is such a pain
A decorator could paint the walls again
I need a man around this place
He'd help me out, with style and pace
If he is sexy, that would be good
I'd happily reward him
Any way that I could
I'd satisfy his manly needs
If he'd help me with daily household deeds
sometimes i paint
sometimes i write
sometimes i do what i think i might
sometimes i play piano
sometimes i play guitar
sometimes i steal from the cookie jar
sometimes i dance
sometimes i sing
sometimes i try to do everything
yes, i am a jack of all trades--
master of none, but better than
a master of one.
Regular training tonight, that's right,
nothing new, no fright i cite.
So we will start at last light, to ignite and incite,
your skills to manage conflict and fight.
But also your health and your might,
to improve, increase and help forthright.
So, it's cold alright, alright, but despite this blight,
come training tonight, tonight; Alright?

I thought of what skill I'd want to have, I thought maybe I wanted to have a musical talents so I could sarenade you in song. Then I thought maybe poetry so I could win you over with words as sweet as honey. And as I kept thinking I pictured my self with the skill of running fast so I'm their as soon as you need me.
But now I'm sitting here with no skills writing words you will never read.
