One and One is Three

Sitting in the classroom
What a disgrace
I use the rubber
To erase my face

The pen starts to leak
Covering my hands
My life runs dry
No-one understands

I sit at the back, dare not to speak
When the kids chat, I turn the other cheek

My desk is kingdom
The place I reign
I grow my hair
To cover my shame

They say I’m thick
Well, I tend to agree
They’re aged twelve
And I’m over thirty

The lessons I’ve learned, have no credence
The books I’ve burned, they caused me grievance

Tribulation elates
Expulsion awaits
My mind sees no colours
I’ll die amongst flowers
One and one is three
For me

Alienation I adore
Conversation I abhor
My mind walks away
From the body that stays
I feel so empty
I’ll never be…

…The man you want to see
