Title: Respect

It's tough being a teacher
The kids have no respect
Their faces distorted by chewing
Their expressions forever perplexed
"It's like does she 'spect us to listen?"
"It's like she finks that we're 'ere to learn."
"It's like will she shu'rup so we can switch off?"
"It's like does she 'avto come on so like stern?"
It's tough being a teacher
I've lost my respect for the kids
It's like I've had enough of their aggro.
It's like I think it's time to call quits.
