Please, Professor

Oh please, professor, please shut up,
My head, my brain is stuffed, full up,
I know I need to pay attention,
But my mind’s gone past all redemption,
So please, professor, please shut up.

It’s not that I don’t want to learn,
It’s not that this class I spurn,
It’s just that I’ve my focus lost,
And I know not listening will cost,
So please, professor, please shut up.

I hear you speak, but nothing stays,
I know my eyes have got that glaze,
I’m sorry I don’t seem to care,
About the things you’ve got to share,
But please, professor, please shut up.

Cut class short, just this once,
I feel like such a royal dunce,
The others seem to feel the same,
Heads ducked low in tired shame,
Oh please, professor, please shut up.

My hand is cramped, my eyes have crossed,
My foot’s asleep and I’m plumb lost,
Oh please, oh please, oh please dear prof,
Let us have just an hour off,
Please, professor, please shut up.

Please professor, don’t be sad,
And please don’t let us make you mad,
It’s not that we don’t care – we do!
We just need some time to renew,
So please, professor, please just shut up.
