I’ve seen all the teachers
The ones who don’t care are the most angering ones.
The ones who slam you with homework,
Not taking into account that you all have six other classes of homework tonight.
The ones who yell at students all day,
Not realizing they go home and hear that all night.
The ones who yell at students for eating in their classrooms,
Not believing that’s the only meal they will be provided with today.
The ones who hand you the failed test grade and say
The ones who care more about making sure kids do the work they give out
Than making sure the students’ mental health is okay.
The ones who disrespect students and not let them speak their opinions
Because “they are the adult”
