Dear Secretary DeVos,
School, school which I dispise
Free me from these prying eyes
These cliques and chatter stigmatize
The empty walls don't hear my cries
As I begrudgingly speak their lies.
Oh please don't burden the masses
With such pointless classes
Sure, we don't mind learning
When the teaching deals with yearning
To reach our dream careers.
Busses roam the empty roads
Kidnapping us from our abodes
Forcing me to carry loads -
Books needed for my studies
Memorizing facts, my brain muddies
Separated from my buddies
An aggravation I can't describe.
Dealing with your strict dress codes
Threatens all my expressive modes
Tedious homework assignments
Leave us to our confinements
Sleeping schedules out of their alignments
Slipping further into fatigue.
A number I have been labeled
Forced to sit at the same table
Learning the government's fable
That education is stable.
This learning system is truly broken
So take this poem I have spoken
As a s senior's pleading token
Showing student's discontent
Please remedy the failed attempt
To mold our intellect
Under the government's control.
This is not an accusation
I'm calling for the abdication
And necessary compensation
For the government's corroboration
And the student's exploitation
So ban compulsory education!
