The Schoolchild


In heat or cold
everyday at school
I sit on a desk
with a book in front of me

I feel like a bird
locked up in a cage
I can't stand the classroom anymore
oh, how I wish something would change!


The Schoolchild wants to run around and play all day. The world of the grown-ups, though, forces it to sit on a desk or (even when it's not at school) to always have a book in its hands. It doesn't understand why it should study and it feels trapped. Of course, it has the most timeless and popular wish:

"I would like to finish school"

or, otherwise,

"I would like to grow up (so I can finish school)"!


How was the Schoolchild created?
