You echo the words of a textbook
Yet you expect me to produce innovation
You diminish my words, ideas, and emotions into a vapid letter
Yet you expect me to be affected by your lectures
You humiliate me when I am clearly confused
Yet you expect me to "actively participate"
You say these lessons are preparation for life
Yet you expect me to waste my life away with busywork
I do not care, don't you see?
All you say is meaningless to me
I want to see and feel the world
Not be stuck in this institution in which I'm hurled
I mean no direspect at all
But when did it become your job to instruct?
Your title is teacher
I want to be taught
