Trapped Words

Location

I bite my tongue to hold back the words

I so wish I could free these trapped birds

Isn't that what I am: a wingless animal?

My ideas ignored, since teachers don't accept ideas that sound radical

I notice people cheating, lying, copying to get a good grade

Yet I don't tell anyone, because I am too afraid

Of being "that" snitch in the class

So I just ignore the idea and let it pass

Yet what is the teacher doing while the cheating occurs?

Oh, playing Candy Crush on the phone while mischief stirs.

Of course getting good grades is of utmost importance

But if cheating is involved, then just ignore the above sentence.
