Brad Jackel: Schooled

Schooled   I have yet to meet a stripper who didn’t think all men pigs. I have yet to meet a thief who didn’t think all were thieves. I have yet to meet a copper who didn’t think all were crooks. I have yet to meet a liar who didn’t think all were false. I have yet to meet a cheater who was capable of trust. And I have yet to meet a teacher who didn’t start to tell me, from the moment that they met me, just how much they had to teach me.   Brad Jackel
