Bully

Bully

I watch you day to day

I faithfully listen to the words you say

But is that all?

Have you no accountability to call?

 

You claim your curriculum is better than the rest

Yet your students could never pass the test

Of course you were blind to your putrid vanity

But it shoved me so close to losing my sanity

 

I will look back on your class in future’s time

Always waiting for that school bell’s chime

Will you even remember my name?

Or just burn my existence in the fiery flame?

 

Do not doubt that I will remember you

Not the things you taught or the knowledge you knew

How you raged at that student with your uncontrolled wrath

And ridiculed him until he was degraded to chaff

 

I watch you day to day

I faithfully listen to the words you say

But is that all?

Have you no accountability to call?
