Teacher of Arithmetic

Douse your ****-like fire, you teacher of Arithmetic.
For your insulting ways make your pupils sick.
Your heartless scolds come at a constant pace.
You are like the Sheppard who tries to herd her sheep with an Iron Mace.
Your apathy for our esteem shows your ignorance.
Your mocking of our learning minds has spread like pestilence.
You care not if we give it our hardest try.
Only the utter perfection of a newly learned skill can please your blinded eye.
Heed my words, oh mathematical philosopher,
Remove this crude anger that you foster.

I understandd the feeling behind this. I just don't relate to your reaction. I feel sorry for people like you discribe. You are realy confusing me. Obviously you have poetic talent. But somtimes it's as though you forgot to go back and finetune. This one is pretty good.
