Fees Must Fall by Charl Landsberg

this Blade
just won’t cut it
dulled down
by his personal contempt
for his very job
and his wards
it’s dangerous to attempt
to use an unkempt
blunt knife
that has nothing but resentment
for the kitchen of his office
and the chef of the government
who no longer cooks for the students
but hide
behind their gilded vault
what use is there
for a chef and a Blade
when they’ve sacrificed service for assault?
this Blade
just won’t cut it
