Failure

You need to sit down.
You need to sit down and be-quiet.
I am teaching.
You need to sit down, be-quiet, and watch me.
I am teaching.
No.
No.
No!
No !!
I am teaching.
Follow the rules.
Go faster.
Follow these new rules.
I am teaching.
Be-quiet. Be more quiet. Be silent.
Stop tapping your foot.
Stop tapping your fingers.
Stop moving.
Stop raising your hand.
Stop asking me questions.
Listen to me.
Listen to me.
I am the teacher.
You’re not looking at me, go to the office.
You’re not learning what I’m teaching, we need to hold a meeting.
You’re not trying.
You need to try harder.
I am taking away your recess.
I am taking away your lunch.
You’re not going on the field trip.
You need to motivate yourself.
“Good evening, I’m Johnny’s Teacher. Johnny was bad today.”
“Good evening, I’m Johnny’s Teacher. Johnny didn’t listen today.”
“Good evening, I’m Johnny’s Teacher. Johnny didn’t do his homework.”
Facebook status: I have a student his name is “Tom” he doesn’t listen. He ruined my day.
Why don’t these kids listen?
Why don’t these parents care?
Why don’t these people get, I’m teaching.

-This is a satirical poem regarding a person who teaches badly, usually I don’t explain, but I want people to be clear where I am coming from.-

    This would be a great poem to discuss with kids. Thanks

I would like to politely say
