The Eclectic Pen - The Truth About School

  I wander the endless corridors
Where excruciating tasks are never concise
Devoid of joy, yet the pain is too much to endure
A torture chamber in an educational disguise

Resilience is tested each minute of each day
As “student” slaves are forced beyond their limit
Brusque teachers who are avid to watch you toil away
Savoring terror pervading the classroom and the children within it

Even if you succeed, it’s to no avail
Despicable labor is far from done
Teachers anticipate the chance to watch you fail
As you pray to once again see the light of the sun

This prison; this school, only brings one thought about
That the lives of millions would be better without
