I'n School


In school:




I was told to sit down and shut up.
I should just shut up and

be quiet

In school I could learn
And I learned
and I faced the master

I learned about the play,
the theatre,
but this was no school of drama

So I lied

I lied about my friends,
the theatre, the girl
and I ran away

I ran away from the master
And I was the master

but I cried when I left
I was told to sit down and shut up
and I left that school because I didn't fight.

I just got up
and left,

quietly.
