What Is School Like? Poem by Jacob Gifford

What Is School Like?

Rating: 3.6


School is like a prison
We can't leave,

School is like an island
We are all trapped,

School is like a pie
It is good at first until you reach the crust,

School is like a toilet
It is full of germs,

School is like a salad
You have to put something on it to make it better,

School is like a stupid cat
It never dies,

School is like a garbage truck
It smells, it's big and you can here it from a mile away,

School is like a baby
It always needs your attention,

School is like a shark
It just keeps chasing,

School is like going to jail
You never want to go back,

you are totally wrong school is fun and it will help you to get into college. after you go to college you can get a job that you can in joy. so don't ruin your education by being stupid and this is coming from a 13 year old. Trust me life will be soooooooo much better when you get the job you want

Your lines are short and written in simple English that isn't monotonous to read...as to your opinion, it's relative: school was like that for me as a junior but in my senior years it was simply awesome...but anyone that's ever has a bad day at school can relate to what you wrote

you've stated clearly your school feeling nicely, but I disagree school on my perspective, protects, feeds you information that you are not forced to eat, basically school is what you make of it,
