"Most of the harm in the world is done by good people, and not by accident, lapse, or omission. It is the result of their deliberate actions, long persevered in, which they hold to be motivated by high ideals toward virtuous ends." - Isabel Paterson

The war is not over


It's that time of year again
To take your books
Go back to hell
They say you're learning, that's a lie
We did it last year
It didn't take us anywhere
Through the ninth circle
Just do it all again
Back in that same place
No, not learning any more
This time it's diferrent
This time, a ten-month war...

They have us come over
To do it all over
They said it was over
But it's never over....

Don't look ahead yet
So many years to go
It's best to leave now
They make us stay here anyway
I could have left now
So many years ago
They make us stay now
Same teachers same dumb lies
We couldn't move on
This year just like the last
They leave us trapped here
And first we're asking for how long

They have us come over
To do it all over
They said it was over
But it's never over....

Every year at this time
It's been just the same again
take books, get lied to
They say it's for our own good
The same shit each year
It doesn't take us anywhere
Yet they enslave us
Like it's the only way
Through the same cycle
Each ring burns at our minds
They call us crazy
That's what the system does

They have us come over
To do it all over
They said it was over
But it's never over....

First off lovely poem, I actually really liked it :D

Also, Davis, it isn't fair, but if school WAS fair, SS wouldn't exist, now would it?

and they all are racist, sexists, sadists and controlfreaks. if the teacher insults you in any way you can not say something back to deffend yourself. today in school i asked my teacher for an alternative (quietly listening music on my own in the back of the class and do my work) to learning wich i always do when im reading at home and stuff like that, so he started shouting at me just for asking and ended up with him giving me a report card. HOW IS THAT FUCKING FAIR?!?!?!?!
