My Stupidest Students

One knows Pi to the 20th degree
Another makes more in a year than me
All are adept and swim like fish
In the world of Japanese business
And in the pressure cooker of Japan
They all do more than I ever can
I would wonder how to reach them
If English were all that I teach them
But we share insights on life and love
That greater education that lies above
My joy is helping them grow as people
Not worshiping at academia’s steeple
I never mistake a student’s intelligence
For their opinion of English’s relevance
