    True Education :teach:

    Get an edge on stagnation
    Pursue a true Edge/u/cation
    It's not just for the youth
    You need it too
    Now aint that the truth
    Not just to make more money
    It's all so very funny
    How with trillions out in credit
    You haven't already said it
    We need true education
    Based on Allah's Great Creation
    What we see must be imitation
    That just increases our limitations
    And tells us that we should be patient/s
    Think quick
    We're not sick
    It's time to pick
    True Education
