are extraordinary

They teach us
about topographical features,
and the causes of the First World War.

They teach us
about working safely with Bunsen Burners
and what a protractor is for.

They teach us
about apostrophe’s
and where not to put them.

They teach us
when to open our mouths
and when best to shut them.

make us dream-chasers,

Yes, teachers
are extraordinary

Except for Mr Jenkins,
‘cos he put me in detention that time
when I done a Chinese burn on Craig Hutchings.
