School Ghosts - an art work

School Ghosts

Many schools are ghost-ridden
with echoes of muffled screams

In their barren walls you'll find
teachers staring vacantly

With sarcasm some inquire
"Is intellectual torture what you need?"

Others laugh cryptically,
"Forget about any intellect crap –
Regulations are what you must heed."

Sauntering across creaky corridors
& musty, rotting floors
shadows of student-ghosts appear
then vanish under the doors.

Gazing at them, I wonder
"Why do so many schools have
nightmares in such abundant supply?"

Then I remember zombies make
perfect citizens – isn't what why
schools are cemeteries in disguise?
