He frowned lousily;
He wanted to die
As often as always.
These beasts allow themselves to smirch him
And denounce his reputation
Of honourable teacher
Into a blatant selfish monster.
They must abhor him,
In his presence they are always oblique;
Speaking things their hearts couldn’t feel-
Behind his back,
Words that pierced his soul,
-mind and heart.
He was obstinate.
He was dogged determined to disgrace them;
His decision was chancy-
But it mesmerized him completely.
The cheerful, joyous and jovial
Laughter and enthusiasm
They often share
As they bury him alive
Were prejudiced on his path.
He must set them to shame!
Nothing more than a sick savage!
It fascinated him;
How weak their respect was,
How lazy their hearts were,
How shallow their minds thought,
He was eager for his advantageous revenge.
Picking up his envious weapons
With a sharp smirk;
He walked into the classroom,
Holding the strength of his revenge.
The palliative source of his sorrows;
Tearing through their souls,
He let the beast loose.
-And no sound was heard.
He merried at their dismay-
All of them!
Looking so lost;
And only five minutes remaining.
