What I Couldn't Say to My Teacher


I have gone to school for many years,

What I have learned isn't exactly clear.


There were many teachers who taught me well,

English, math, science, and how to spell.


Mr. Care, he was the best,

He taught us better than all the rest


He taught us math and how to add,

So when that certain day came it was all so sad.


He came to class with his "fly" down low,

I wanted to say something and let him know.


When he realized, it was far too late,

The class had noticed, that sealed his fate.


Why didn't I say something to make him aware?

Because there's just some things you can't say to your teacher.

Sorry Mr. Care.
