    I am a teacher and I come home pale and tired every day. This is so familiar to me.

    Having taught school for 30 years - music - I can relate to this one. Music classes were fun, but I also had a math class once and a, gasp, study hall. Good stuff, teach. Love, daver

    Thanks, Jack. The frustration, thankfully, turned to inspiration and was worth it for this poem:)

    This reminds me of Shel Silverstein's writing. That poor teacher!

    Shel was one of my poetic heroes. I remember exactly where I was when I heard "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout" read aloud;) P.S. did you know he wrote "A Boy Named Sue" recorded by Johnny Cash?

    :-) you paint those classroom scenes so well, enjoyed this and "Tommy". Can feel the energy of the kids bouncing around the room!
