5 More Minutes


Come on

Only 5 more minutes

What have I learned today


The focus is on sports

And new Mac books in the library

And flat screen TVs in the cafe


4 more minutes

This was my last year

My last experience with a free education system

But what have I learned



3 more minutes

My favorite programs were never recognized

"Dance is not a sport"

But cheerleading is

"The arts aren't important

Give all the money to sports"


2 more minutes

Getting bullied

Not my problem

Family issues

Not my problem 

Just pass your class

It makes me look good


60 seconds

Did I pass my classes 


Will I get into a good college


So why isn't that enough

Right, schools are freakin' ridiculous sometimes.
