When I won’t do my work.
It’s really not that big a deal,
But still, she goes berserk.
She says we can’t chew bubble gum.
That’s such a silly rule,
And when I chew it anyway,
She loses all her cool.
When I am late to class, she acts
Like that’s a major crime.
It’s just a couple minutes, but
It gets her every time.
There’s nothing wrong with standing up
To tell the class some jokes,
But you’d think from the way she acts,
I’d killed a bunch of folks.
When I start mocking when she speaks,
She thinks that I’m a jerk.
Her face gets red all over, while
I just sit there and smirk.
She has no patience, none at all.
I think it’s kind of odd,
The way she lost her mind because
I’d spit a paper wad.
She really blew a gasket once,
The time I punched a kid.
Just playing with my buddies is
No cause to blow her lid.
She didn’t like it one small bit—
That tack upon her chair.
She had no sense of humor when
She sat right on it there.
She wrote a letter to my mom
That said I’m a distraction.
Each tiny thing that I had done,
She called a rule infraction.
If I became the teacher here,
My classes would be fun.
I’d never make nitpicky rules
Or fuss at anyone.
