Three Sets of Eyes

Concentration waning, look straight ahead
Listen to the teacher if you want to earn bread
Three sets of eyes, the microscope I feel
What on earth could be the deal

Knowing,communicating,conniving and scheming
My education irrelevant, their strategy had begun
Lascivious smiles, I wish I was dreaming
Deathly cold fear rising, I am undone

Of spirit gentle, a soul that smiles
Imagination that rides the wind
This unfortunately attracts their guiles
My patronage, I wish to rescind

The piercing siren, the day has ended
Or has it just, for you my friend
Three sets of eyes I cannot see
Perhaps they’ve gone to blend

Gauntlet nearby the adventure begins
My eyes like dinner plates,
A head that spins

Never alone, always the three
Brothers in arms,
They make good company

Limbs whirling, shadows towering
It is kind of claustrophobic in here
It is ok son it has only just begun
We have the rest of the year

And so recalling in past tense
I comprehend indelibly
To come to terms with such offence
Behaviour so despicably

It is with clarity, I see the world
Life’s adventures, the mould is shaped
Character building, the clay was hurled
Conquered I have,
this being…. raped
