Wk 8, Term 2, Year 1

Attendance is a

Bitch. Having to fake

Concern’ over how they’re

Doing???? When I’ve seen them wagging.

Everytime they lie I see the “she’s buying it…”

Flicker across their face;

Grins

Hardly hidden.

Interval walks to the staff room

Just wind me up.

Knowing students

Love heckling me, compete for the “Hello”, the “Kia Ora”, or the “Hat. Off.”

Miss, miss miss”, they’re always missing me.

None of them give me a break.

Overtired, and feeling the

Pressure

Quietly pressing down on my

Rigid

Shoulders.

Tense

Under the sheer

Volume of my

Workload.

eXhausted

Yet

Zealous, still. Perhaps overly, either way, it’s a good Z word.
