Straight Lines

Straight lines
Tiny desks
Small rooms
Textbooks

Heavy work
On our backs
How is this helping us?

Time limits
Set structure
Bells ring
Hurrying

Time’s up
Pencils down
Our futures are decided now

Heavy work
On our backs
How is this helping us?

Quiet down
Stop moving
Don’t run around
Blend in

If your mind wanders
You must be sick
There are pills for this

Heavy work
On our backs
How is this helping us?

Creative minds
Trapped behind
Lectures, tests, and memorization

Read about
The world outside
We don’t get to travel

Heavy work
On our backs
How is this helping us?

If your mind wanders
You must be sick
There are pills for this
