The class is packed
All energy sapped
From the all-nighter before
I try to focus,
But my eyes just keep closing.
If they gave us less to do at night,
Right now my mind would actually be learning.
What's the rush?
It's like they're reading off a list.
Not even any time for questions,
Only time or this,
Isn't this a place for thinking?
That's not possible when we're almost sleeping
Oh teacher, why give so much homework
When we've tried so hard at school?
And it's not much by itself
But with five other classes
And work for every class
Don't expect us to provide quality...
Only enough to pass.
Now I'm not saying homework's bad,
Not at all, in fact it helps with practice.
But if I don't even have time to do my chores
That says too much has been assigned for all my classes.
So why not give less homework
So we can have more time for our personal lives
And definitely essential sleep?
Why not spend more time on each subject during class
And then we'll have a better understanding of the topic?
Why not teach with your own knowledge
Rather than reading off a power point
That someone else made
Just to get through the lesson
Only because it's required?
But instead I'm given more homework
And then I stay up late
And the next day I'm tired
And during school I can't focus
And the teacher gets irritated
But the teacher was the one
Who assigned all the homework in the first place.
