“Not many books”, he said with a scowl
As in her home he continued to prowl
“I’d thought you were at least a reader,
Since you call yourself a teacher.”
A student’s parent had come to visit
Investigating the young snippet
Who indeed taught his son
But she wasn’t the only one.
His son was a challenge in her eyes
Meeting his dad, she now knew why
Offering tea, trying to be civil
Politely listened to his drivel.
Caring teachers are out there
So try to be polite and fair
Peering into their personal space
Takes lots of nerve and not any grace.
