Intermediate Accounting

I did not make or take this photo. I found it online.

I am in prison, we all are. It’s

Not a place we like

To be, especially when

Early release isn’t exactly an option.

Right away we try to hide the

Mere boredom in our

Eyes. We are lions in a glass

Den, our souls pace while we stare

In silence. This is

A non-elective hell and we

Take the quiet to the

Extreme. Not a word we say.

As with almost all tedious

Classes, not one question is asked. The

Creature that we watch and, of our

Own accord, choose not to escape

Utters on and on. We stay mute, trying

Not to show we are ignoring him. But

There is a screaming in our heads. It

Insists that he doesn’t mean to do this.

Never has he meant to hurt us. It says the

Gentleman doesn’t realize he keeps us in hell.

      Spoken like a truly experienced student! I teach at a university, and I will remember these words. I try to include plenty of questions and group activity assignments, because I can see how crucial that interaction is in maintaining attention. So sorry you've experienced the deadly boring times you mention here! Well phrased, and gets the point across!
