June 20

For a year now I’ve been tasked to teach
And for a year before that to learn
How to reach the students hard to reach

And earn the respect of the class
When moving them through a task
Meant to offer depth and meaning.

I’ve spent my former lives selling,
administering, enforcing and managing,
plugging in computer code in order

To make things, passing on majors
That would have made me more money
So you see, this past year passed by

Too quickly. And while some will enjoy
The long beads of sweat that summers
Breed, I will long for fall to succeed.
