Teacher. Teacher who?

Location

You call yourself teacher

Yet, do you truly teach?

You call yourself teacher

Yet, do you do as you preach?

You call yourself teacher

Yet, I've learned nothing from you

Not why the grass is green

Or why the sky is blue

You call yourself teacher

Yet you sit behind your desk

Playing on your phone

Yet, teaching your "best"

You call yourself teacher

Yet, I have nothing to say

No answer to give when you call my name

For, all year I have done worksheets and packets

Never learning

Never growing

Just sitting and moaning

You call yourself teacher

Yet, you never know what you're saying

You call yourself teacher

But we are the ones who are paying

You call yourself teacher

But is that true?

If you are not teacher

Than who?
