Large brick walls surround me

Workload weighs me down

Sheeple walk the busy halls

Each with a zombie-like frown

Tell us when to eat

Tell us when we can leave

Powerless to do anything else

None of us are free

Work eats up all time

And spits it to the void

Shackles bind my weary shoulders

No way to run or avoid

No choice to go against

The furious whirlpool

Oppressed and beaten down

From the prison they call school

I'm actually reading this in school, and I couldnt agree more. School sucks.
