Why I Hate SchoolTeacher, teacher, I have a question.
If poetry is expression,
About how the world can be nice or cruel,
Then why are there so many, many rules?
Well, my student, you see,
That's the way things are meant to be
We have to use fancy words
To make sure our poems are clearly heard
But do I have to show rhyme schemes
And not to demean,
But showing where the terms are
In the poem seems a little bizarre.
It's to show our learning,
So to this school we can be returning
I know it seems odd at first,
But trust me, it's not the worst
You read us that book where the boy
Wrote the poems
With really short lines
And nothing rhymed
And there was no imagery
Why can't we write our poems like that?
That's just not the usual norm
We have to use different forms
To learn how to write lots of poems
They sort of serve as totems
Teacher, that doesn't make any sense.
Every single poem you've read us doesn't use every single poetry term you taught us.
Most don't ha
