Student Lies

Leave a comment

Words, lessons, wisdom
All falling victim
To your whims and fancy
Your beloved technology
That sucks your time
And numbs your mind
Hijacking your thinking
While your snaps are sending
You reject learning
In favor of playing
Headphones pumping sound
Eyes always looking down
Refusing to be taught
In a web you’re caught
Your freedom an illusion
Sowing seeds of your own ruin
Declaring that you’re woke
But all your words are choked
You don’t want an education
You only want more relaxation


Welcome New School Year

Leave a comment

The bell will ring
Come on in
Hopes and goals bring
Students as school begins

Please have a seat
I’m glad you’re here
It’s wonderful to meet
It’s a brand new school year

If last year disappointed
Leave it far behind
It’s not so much important
Those marks, they don’t define

I have so much to teach
So many things to learn
There’s lots of goals to reach
Many pages we have to turn

Fear not my students
I will lead the way
We’ll explore many subjects
And learn more every day

Please come in, you’re invited
The school year’s just begun
I’m so thrilled, delighted
We’re going to have so much fun
