School life

school life is supposed to be interesting, but in reality
school life is, well, to put it bluntly, hell.
but i can't say that
when inspectors come, they tell me to pretend everythings rosy here
but its not
there are all sorts of things going on here
and i can't tell them
because it is not in the best interests of the school to tell people
they try and demand respect, instead of earning it
they think that because they are adults, they're better than us
they've decided we should follow as sheep
and not be independent, though they claim thats what they teach us
it's all a lie, the happy faces
we're not really like that, i so wish they could see the other side of school life
but they can't, because we can't tell them what to look for
the teachers, messing us about
the visitors, demanding attention from us
the kids around us, just as miserable
i hate school...
no i don't i like the challenge, and the way you can undermine their authority by a few simple words 'no' 'get lost' 'i don't want to'
that is why i come to school, for the excitement of annoying them
the buzz of really getting on their nerves
seeing how far i can push it until they snap
and what happens when they do
it's funny.
