Teachers Playing God

September 9, 2008
Teachers like to play God
To sit up on their lofty spinning chairs
And ramble off a series of phrases
With booming voices, demanding respect
Wisdom that cannot be denied
But can be interrupted
Only by the attendance sheet of course.
And Suzy, caught chewing gum again
A judgment you might say
If the teacher really was God
Suzy might be a little more worried
There would truly be hell to pay
Instead of just after school detention
A truly empty threat
…In the scheme of things.

This is a very cool poem, especially the last line. I think it might be a good idea to give it a different title so that you don't give away the whole idea before your reader starts reading. But your call.
