The Good, the True, the Beautiful, and the Assistant Principal

By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall (Rated G)
(Well, three out of four, eh?)
For David Pitts,
Who Honors his Students

Of math the assistant principal spoke:
The elegance of a geometric proof
When it brightens the mind, the eye the sky
Completing a song of the universe

Of poetry a teacher rattled on:
The elegance of rhythmic verse that tells
Of dancing stars and dreaming mists and life
Completing a song of the seasons of man


All learning is not only right and dutiful
It is a matter of
The Good, the True, and the Beautiful
