Once again, I am back at school,
And again, I feel such a fool.
A mist of stupidity enfolds my brain
… intelligence, I cannot claim.
I do not know much or anything at all.
Each morning I find some way to stall
That dreaded activity – going to school.
"I've lost my clothes, I've lost my books"
So turn up late, receive angry looks.
And struggle my way through each day
Waiting, just to get away.
But daydreaming… it does not work
And, I find I seem to shirk
All other work that I am given
By whips, I feel I am driven
For stress, misery and stupidity beat me
And tears fall, blind me and I cannot see.
Still, knowingly I stumble into hell
Sent by laws,
I am forced to wait for the end-of-day bell.
