School

Put on the blank mask

Draw the smile and bright eyes

You know your task

To make it through the lies

Bind your soul

It can wait

Fill the hole

This is fate

Tie the strings

And let your body relax

Become the servant of kings

Or pay the tax

Listen to their plee

Let opinion drain from your mind

Let them bask in glee

You must seem blind

For they can tell

Fact from fable

And they will make life hell

Sticking on labels

So lay low

Let your movements flow

And have a nice day at school.
