Interior Design?

Tired red curtains,
Long passed their ‘best-before’ date, and
Grubby yellow walls,
In need of a new coat of paint.
Rickety old tables,
Covered in graffiti of hilarious intent, and
Unsteady chairs,
With uncomfortable seats and legs bent.
Cracked grey ceilings, grimy windows,
Empty orange cans, half-full bottles,
Faded brown floors, bent coat-hangers,
Grubby white-boards, chipped skirting boards,
Pockmarked green notice boards, torn information sheets,
Overflowing blue bin, broken light bulbs.

Sixty grey-clad boys, one school study hall.
