Here´s one that bothered me earlier…
Schooled families are all alike, but each
homeschooled is different in its own way
Some live on boats beyond the river´s reach
others in houses camouflaged in clay:
We merge with you about our daily business
You wouldn’t recognise us in the street
Except that Children Running Wild are witness
and “Not in School today?” is how we greet.
Beware: this is a secret ripe for spilling
that anyone can do this: it’s the law
You don’t need their permission – just be willing
to quote the act of 1944
that dream of school for all to realise
– but for two pregnant words: Or Otherwise.
