The Teacher’s Lament

If you are a teacher you will probably ‘get’ this immediately!  It’s a small ‘semi-sonnet’ which sums up something that seems to happen a lot.  Even if you’re not I expect it resonates as the same could be said for virtually every profession.   So perhaps this shouldn’t have been called The Teacher’s Lament at all – perhaps The Worker’s Lament instead?  It’s short and my first attempt at poetry since I was about 16 so be kind..!
