I am, so I wrote one. Hope you enjoy it. The Teacher’s Lament You have some time today, I see. Your teacher’s canceled Chemistry. My class won’t start till three-thirty. And would it okay with me, Since there’s some place you’d rather be, You ask, I hope, facetiously, Whether I would mind terribly, If you skipped my class and left early. I try not to take it personally, But it’s very plain for me to see, You don’t care about the class or me, But I know you want me to agree, And so I do, but quite sadly.
