Good Morning, Teacher


A wizard without a monarch

Spells to cast for no one

Lessons offered in an empty room

So Merlin retires


A teacher in an empty classroom

Someone standing on the shore alone

Where is Miranda

For Prospero to teach about

The wider world?


We need learners

We need to serve the cause

In animated bone and blood and flesh

Mentors require mentees

Can you imagine Mister Chips

Without someone to say good-bye?


I can’t

I don’t want to

It’s not a crave for audience

The universe is crowded

It’s someone who comes into the room

Asks a question

Just right for a leading answer

An educator’s reply, meant for


Let’s begin
