The Sub

 

Years ago we thought

The Sub meant free class

At school

 

We followed no rules

And were rude

We justified being crude

 

This hasn’t changed over time

Who started it?

I wonder why

 

I’m sitting here now

Sub for the day

There’s not much to do

 

Legitimate free time

Wish I’d brought a book

Or a laptop

 

For the sake of feeding my mind

Guess there won’t be Sub abuse

Prove myself yet again

Though my co-instructor

Didn’t present me by name

The students know nothing to gain

 

Saw Kant written

On the board

Wished I’d kept a copy

 

The University undeserving

My prize

Checked terminology to stay on top

 

But I’ll have no need to reply

A monitor to police

The extent of my day

 

No Sub notes otherwise, just keep an eye

Make certain all students

Type away

 

 

Next time select slowly

No desperations to work

Duties won’t disappoint or surprise

 

At least the first block

Awarded me time

For Espresso and a soufflé

 

That wasn’t a bad way

To start off

A day

 

Last block

Didn’t need me

So I was sent away

 

More afternoon time to write

Take not a bad way to start off a day

Into a very good night
