Poetry Teacher's Confession

Oh dear kind Lord, I beg you and, when on my knees to pray, I need a little helping hand to guide me through this day. I have to face a motley band who can’t think what to say. I give them all the guff and gen to help them understand. The work is very simple when they’re organised and planned. And yet their fumbling specimen look strictly second hand. I guide them all, the usual way, to seek some homonym. To no avail, day after day, their efforts still look grim. Oh please may I confess and say; “I find them very dim!” ~ For Anne's "Confessions" Competition.
