A Schooling of Fear
By May Kwek
Fear! Fear! An aura of fear!
Simply because an exam is here
Be afraid you will fail your test!
Be afraid that you won't be the best!
Such is the message drilled in our hearts
A follower of fear lest it breaks us apart
Weren't we supposed to be using our heads?
Why is education a competition instead?
Tuition classes, enrichment and all!
Even for children as young as four!
All because of this terrible fear
We'll do anything for first to be near
We will study all day and night
Following your passion is just not right
No, we must study every day
And we won't let anything get in our way!
Fear! Fear! Can you hear?
Your death knell is sounding, it is quite near
Because I refuse to be a follower of your way
Now get lost! You shall not stay!
