I remember when teachers and students looked forward to school,
We thought it was cool.
The government corrupted;
Unequal opportunities across the city,
We don’t need the pity.
Do they even care?
Doesn’t seem so, or things would be fair.
What we need are more diverse classes,
So we’re not labeled lazy asses.
We want to learn,
But we’re stopped at every turn.
We don’t want, nor need limitation,
We need better and diverse education.
