Excerpt from Elevator Part 2


From Louie:

The teachers are stupid, the kids are stupid.

Really, they’re all stupid. I’m not just saying this – it’s true.

Christopher Columbus is a murderer. They want me to draw a picture of him smiling.

They don’t know how numbers work and they want me to do it all wrong.

The kids are just mean babies. They don’t know anything really, and the teachers don’t know anything.

They’re mean and tired and they’re stupid and they just say what’s in the book.

Because they don’t know.

You see, they don’t answer any real questions.

Like why is there even an America?

How come France isn’t a part of New York City?

Why isn’t, let’s say, Africa India, and China has the most people?

And why isn’t God on the news?
