When I was young,
I had all sorts of freedom;
To roam about as I pleased,
I could even eat Edam.
Now school has come around,
And that freedom is gone;
No windows, just homework, and learning of
I wish you would understand
The pain that this causes.
The days that you ruin
With your boring lecture pauses.
It’s like you don’t seem to think
That we kids have life to live,
We show up to your class,
With little attention to give.
One day you'll see
that all that we want
Is a chance to go back
And pretend that we fought
Pirates and lions
And even monsters too;
Picking our favorites,
And not wearing shoes.
We sit in your class,
Yet you stare right back at us;
Such a savant.
I wish we had some class outside,
I wish you would give us more than one option,
I wish you would make class into something
Interesting without caution.
I wish you were more interactive,
I wish you gave us more freedom
But I know that we all must abide to the rules of your kingdom.
