What Do The Simple Folk Do?

Tom Harvey, Cathie Black's husband, is helping tutor Cathie on the subtleties of public education in New York City. Really, as Lancelot, he's just channeling what King Arthur/Mike is passing on.
view a slice of their world
What do public education folk do?
To be so unaware that we're applying the screws?
The child who is failing, the parent who is glum
The teacher who is wailing while under the thumb
When they're beset and besieged
The folk not noblessly obliged
However do they manage to shed their weary lot?
Oh, what do simple folk do we do not?

I have been informed by those who know them well
They find relief through our clever ways
When they're sorely pressed, the lying media's there at our behest
To redirect their anger and that seems to brighten up their day
And that's what simple folk do
So they say
