The desk is neat; the coat's unseen
No teacher there - high five!
You cheer, you applaud, it's a happy scene
As you wait for the sub to arrive.
Who will it be this time,
Mr. Strict or Mr. Nice?
Perhaps it's Ms. Crazypants
who you've already had twice.
Mr. Strict gives out worksheets galore
but doesn't allow you to talk
You ask him a question about number four
but all he can do is gawk.
Mr. Nice lets you do as you please
He's a sweet guy, hunched and small
Which is why he's begging at the knees
by the time class ends, it's too loud at all
Ms. Crazypants, she was a wild one
who couldn't make up her mind
good cop, bad cop, or none?
She was really hard to define.
Sometimes you have to ask yourself:
"Did the board get these people off the street?"
Maybe it was a facebook message?
An announcement? A tweet?
