First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.


Wish I had wings, rain-clouds meet my eyes,
Up and out, that like a bird I would fly.
I fear neither death nor pain,
But rather protection from this free-falling rain.
All my fear, brings,
To my eyes a tear.
Fear of a cage, that I might not escape,
And all chance of expression is gone.
The heavens are as brass, and I jealously see the freedom,
That of the trees in the wind,
And in the ground, grass,
But I am trapped,
Behind this prison of see-through glass.

i wrote this while sitting in English class on a rainy day. Despite the soggy weather, I would rather have spent my time outside instead of in school.

"They made their own choice. They chose family. And, well... isn't that kinda the whole point? No doubt - endings are hard. But then again... nothing ever really ends, does it?"
--Chuck, 'Supernatural' Episode 522

I would say that this poem accurately describes the feelings of just about every person sitting in a classroom against their will
