Dear Teacher

Location

 

Dear Teacher I am listening

 

I can hear all that you say

 

And when I put my head down

 

Dreams don't whisk me away

 

I'm still here in this classroom

 

Hearing the same thing day after day

 

So please stop your lecturing

 

I have better things due today

 

 

 

I'll add a little note

 

On the side just for you

 

To remind you that I have others

 

Teachers just like you

 

Who teach a different subject

 

But give assignments just the same

 

So the Homework that you give me

 

Is more than enough for today

 

 

 

You Teachers like to say

 

That I don't care what lies ahead

 

But who are you to say

 

What goes on inside my head

 

The future's all I think about

 

It's running through my mind

 

So you have no authority

 

To say what isn't right
