You’re filled with apprehension, But you know that you must concentrate. You have to pay attention, Think and muse and contemplate.
Write it down! Don’t dare forget, Keep your notes forevermore. Body covered with cold sweat, All your hopes dashed on the floor.
Silence! They expect timidity, They all demand compliance. The lessons all stupidity, But never show defiance.
I marvel that they stay alive Through this thing called education. How do our teens hope to survive This mental amputation?
