Oh you troubled teachers.

Creating a hierarchy

based upon grades

rather than a strong will to learn.

Oh you troubled teachers.

Grade-shaming your students

who are only trying to get through school

as mentally stable as feasible.

Oh you troubled teachers.

Working your students so hard

that they fall asleep in class

from exhaustion and overexertion.

Oh you troubled teachers.

Basing intelligence

by your standardized assessments

and instantaneous exams.

Oh you troubled teachers.

Confusing discipline

with shaming

and exponent forms of harassment.

Oh you troubled teachers.

Shaping your classroom

towards the benefit of extroverts,

when it is the introverts who have the thirst for knowledge.

Oh you troubled teachers.

When will you learn

that it is not only us

who must learn from our mistakes,

but you as well?
