Parody # 5: This Be the Disgrace

February 2, 2021 | Posted by Peter Jakobsen | Poetry, WRITING & LITERATURE | 0 Comments |

(with apologies to Philip Larkin and “This Be the Verse”)

They f__k you up, your teaching staff.

They may not mean to, but they do.

Merrily they meet and laugh

When a spot of teaching might fall due.


But they were f__ked up in their turn

By the hapless, cringing bureaucrats,

Who half the time lacked all concern

And half involved in drunken spats.


Teachers take sabbaticals,

That last longer than world wars.

Bring the kids home from school halls

Protect them from a useless cause.
