A Southern Beat

Battered in Ignorance

They were too ignorant to teach
so they reverted to beat.

Back in the day,
they didn't know of a better way.  

A kid and a mule, shared the same blow,  
don’t spare the rod?
they had a field day by whipping to and fro.

Attempted to guide in a noble direction,
kids now resent and despise the recollection.
