Broken Class

Class upon class
Meet at an edge
Discuss briefings from a steady hand cut ledge
What happens in class
Stays in class
No anthem is written however inmates silently pledge

When an eye bats quicker than the other
It is enough reason the questions they wedge
Secession howbeit the tumour is inevitable this consequence to guage

Class after class after class
Glad to keep the train moving in class
More drum rolling and you'll see
A perfect definition of solidarity.
