So - it's off to school

From puzzles to boxes to rows, and
Rows to boxes and puzzles - what
In the world is this about, anyway?
Each of us is a puzzle, in many
Dimensions, contained in boxes with
Labels - names, addresses, occupations..

A puzzle to ourselves and to others,
We often confront ourselves, and
Others, as boxes only, rarely with
The cover open.

Other boxes are larger, seemingly
More complex - schools, factories,
Offices, churches, and the like.
And each of us has our position
Somewhere, as a puzzle, in a row
(Or rows) of boxes, within
A box - often unable to relate,
Save on the surface. And
Thereby hangs my tale - tied to
The box called school.
