A Teacher’s Tale

“And miles to go before I sleep”:

A league of tasks light and deep,

Must errands to run without delay,

Multi-tasking without thanks or pay:

Noses wiped, shoes tied, tears dried,

Fights stopped, yet I’m sorely tried.

Of course, the photocopier’s jammed!

Sometimes, such little things overwhelm.

Papers to grade, meetings to attend!

Tonight, our team plays.  Will we win?

E-mails to answer, enter those grades!

Bill is failing! His dad’s enraged.

But Ann and Tim were extra clever,

And Raul, he disappoints–never!

Finally, in bed by eleven.

Saturday, I’ll sleep ’til seven.
