I Am Here to Learn

Why are you so worried
About that girl that's texting?
Why should her conversation
Stop me from learning?
Why don't you just let her be
And teach the other students?
Why do you insist on always
Acting so impudent?

How do you even know
She's not listening to you?
How do you know she's not
Just typing and thinking of Peru?
How is it that her typing
Is seriously more important?

Who cares that the girl
In the corner is popping bubblegum?
Who is the one getting hurt
While you stop to lecture her?

When will you understand
That I am here to learn?
