This Is A Poem I Wrote For English Class

By , Ocala, FL
This is a poem I wrote for English class
Forced to write a poem for an A
But what forced poem is a good poem
Like what good are words that never had a say?

This is a poem I wrote for English class
Because the teacher told me too
The teacher and the students in a system
just a place to go, a thing to do

This is a poem I wrote for English class
And Physical Science and Algebra Honors
History and Band class too
Poem I wrote to those who hide in corners

This is a poem I wrote for English class
For the children who never had a say
Who lived within limits
Of a world they cannot revisit again another day

This is a poem I wrote for English class
But I said no when the teacher wanted to publish it
Because I wanted to keep if for myself
And never tell a soul about it

This is a poem I wrote for English class
And I wrote it just for me
Only partly forced
Maybe
