as you dissolve into complacency
a state of being known as adulthood
carry forth the keystone in your young hearts
you, National Honor Society
inductees of the coming school year.
Your strangulation shirts and wobbly heels
show your dedication to dictums
that a student learns, a scholar has learned….
In this world obedience is held dear
bully-boys say the law is in their mouth
which is why you must disobey, for fear
your rights mean nothing-seize them from the louts
their violence is the only constant here
Scholars, this country is you. Wake up now.
