Treasure Island

Gee Cii Schnider

(June 2,1992 / Everhere)

Every Day


Getting up is so damn hard
Rather sleep on a pile of rocks
Than open my eyes to that same old yard

I go to the crap heap of nothing but being bored
That stupid school
Where not a thing is gonna be remembered

The people probably laugh behind my back
Knowing nothing anyway
They want more, lets see my mind be hacked

What if that mask fails
The world'll have something to laugh about now
I wanna see tham walk a million nails

By the time those teachers just stop talking
A pile of papers is on my desk
They expect us to do it, even if we were sleeping

This boing everyday life
Just wont quit
Someone just hand me a stupid knife

Then home to the annoying
Never ending mouth
I need to come up with ideas of decoying

That junk heap of papers now must be solved
Even if we wern't listening to what they were saying
Now all that headachings gonna turn us bald

Now sleep again
Even with the thought of it starting over
Impossible to sleep lying on that bed of tin

Heres my story of boring days
Hows yours
Bet I put you to sleep or in a daze

    I like your poem. It is tough going to school. I remember being a kid. It is even tougher being the teacher though, having to find ways to engage students that would rather sleep. Plus, as the English teacher, you have to grade all those papers that many students have completed without 'giving or showing a rat's ass worth of interest or effort.' It is actually more difficult to grade the poorly written papers than the good ones. I appreciate it when students do their best, and I really do make an effort to teach my students to think. Still, I know how you feel, and I agree with Paul Simon who sings, 'When I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all.' (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
