What if the world...
Was ruled by those who marked answer C, rather than answer A,
Was ruled by people who copied their answers right out of the book,
Was ruled by individuals who copied their homework from a peer,
Was ruled by those who cheated on their finals,
Was ruled by persons who have spent their lives, relying on the creativity of a textbook to merely get by,
Was ruled by those who have never done their homework in time,
Was ruled by those who have never used a more complex vocabulary than that of a pre-schooler, unless displayed on a piece of paper otherwise,
Was ruled by former short-attention teenagers, incapable of stringing together an intelligible, coherent sentence, absent of the retortion, 'Um',
Was ruled by individuals who never have had even a slight ambition to perfect a skill,
Was ruled by people who couldn't concentrate or bear to think outside of the box for the specific tax at hand?
Was ruled by laymen who cannot operate and take care of a computer, although they are immensely more user-friendly than they could be,
We may as well all keel over then!
