I think this poem is about her describing what its like when were
brainwashed. the mourners are the pple trying to change her. the funeral in
her brain is the the part in her brain that is being destroyed from listing
to others."kept treading-treading on my thoughts". the poem i had at school
was a little different.

THIS POEM MAKE MY HEAD TURN UPSIDE DOWN... IT TAKE LONG TIME FOR ME TO
REALIZE WHAT IS THE REAL MEANING OF THE POEM... IT TALKS ABOUT PAIN AND
AGONY OF THE WRITER... I THINK THIS POEM IS BASED ON HER TRAGIC EPERIENCE
OF HER PAST LIFE...

A tribute to Emily's genius, a hint to my overbearing bitter teacher:
I felt a funeral in my Brain
And my teacher to and fro
Kept treading- treading- on my thoughts
Till his dull wit was breaking through.
And when we all were silent
His voice, like a drum
kept treading- treading- and at last
My mind gave up and went numb-
And then he turned to a new poem
It tore right through my soul,
His slanderous Boots of lead, again,
I wish- the bell would toll,
And then a Plank of Boredom, broke,
And i dropped down and down-
I didnt think it could get much worse,
And finished knowing- nothing-
