I have seen many books lie
In the shelf, stack up high
Without usage or consultation;
A useless dump of graduation
And for promotion, just publish
Or be left to rot and perish.

There are lots of researchers
But challenges prefer preachers
To build up faith, forsaking land;
When we have hammers in our hand
Before we kick-buckets and resign
To rebuild earth with great design.

Reinventing wheels is silly
Solution will come in a jiffy
If the fences of universities
Are taken away, and if lecturers
And researchers, aim for advancements
With an open door to their students.

I speak of the youth and mentors
Because while these growing tutors
Have picked up, mentoring careers
It is these students who will,
To the advancement columns fill
Growth and development, high as hill.
