I take up my duty
when I read to children
about Pippi Langstrømpe

she who has been
all over the world
and seen many things strange

who walks on her hands
the way they do in Farthest India
and backwards
the way they do in Egypt
and lies in the manner of Congo
where there is not a single person who tells the truth

it is my community project
to reveal
to children
the wonders of the world

and for myself
it is paramount
to consider local impact
when schooling the world
