When teachers stopped living at school

When teachers stopped sleeping on the tables,

Eating dinner in the cafeteria,

Brushing their teeth in the bathroom,

Hiding their clothes in classroom closets,

Having crazy staff pajama parties


When teachers stopped knowing everything,

Answering any question correctly,

Knowing any subject that you wanted,

Being a walking dictionary


When  teachers became average humans

Who had families,

Slept in houses,

Ate on tables unknown


When Teachers stopped living at school,

Teaching became work,

Everything became about tests,

And I grew up
