100 Words – Curiosity

cat curiosity

“Curiosity killed the cat.” That’s what teachers told us when we became too inquisitive. We were supposed to learn what they wanted us to learn, not what we wanted to learn. We weren’t supposed to question what they taught us no matter how stupid and unrealistic it seemed.

Columbus discovered America, even though there were already people here. Thou shalt not kill, unless there’s a war, then it’s OK. The president is lying to us to protect us.

Then they killed Andy. Beaten to death with metal rulers in the boiler room. The head teacher said, “See, we told you.”
