The child has a hundred languages,
a hundred hands a hundred ways of thinking of playing, of speaking.
The child has a hundred languages
(and a hundred hundred hundred more)
But they steal ninety-nine the school
and the culture separate the head from the body.
They till the child to discover
the world already there
and of the hundred they steal ninety-nine.
And thus they tell the child that the hundred is not there.
The child says: No way. The hundred is there.
