Think

I’m sorry, you came here for a poem, I’m guessing?
Well, I hate to say it, but there is something I ought to be confessing,
I can’t write a poem, I can not rhyme
No of course not, when I have no free time
I spend six hours in school,
where all I do is sit on a stool
Classrooms packed with faceless students,
no one making any improvements,
yet everyone thinks they are the best,
no, I’m not kidding, I do not jest
The world is f*cked up
Mucked up
Filled with children who cannot think

How, I ask, how are we supposed to be creative
when we are stuck in a prison where the smart are isolated?
We can’t share ideas outside, we have no time
We are trapped in rooms, being told what to think full-time
And at home? Ha! Not with homework
Two days of freedom? That’s the only perk
Although most of my weekend is spent
frantically thinking about how the h*ll I’ll be able to pay rent
when I am an adult with no skills
No skills, means many bills, many bills means no thrills
The world is f*cked up
Mucked up
Filled with people who cannot think

Now, I must apologize to everyone I undoubtedly offended
This burst of anger and complaints was unintended
But when I spend everyday in a jail filled with mindless students,
All following the same fads
All thinking they are so rad
A burst of anger should be expected from me
But of course, I always wonder
Am I faceless, just a kid who makes the occasional blunder?
Am I a stereotype?
A big *sswipe?
Who writes poems filled with unnecessary cuss words?
I suppose this poem was pointless
Because no matter what
The world is f*cked up
Mucked up
And I cannot think


The author's comments:

This poem is pretty anti-school, but stay in school, my friends. This poem was written from the view of an angry, unknowledgable teenager, so please don't take it too seriously.

I'm an emotional edgy teen. What did you expect?
