I miss taking part in poetry challenges and games, and I’m going to try to do better in 2013. At David Harrison’s blog, J. Pat Lewis has a Careerhymes challenge up. Go read the hysterical examples and try your own! Here’s mine:
Why You Can Never Reach a Teacher
If you need to chat with teacher,
Do not call; you’ll never reach her.
She’s sparking thoughts, engaging kids.
Ignoring parents who’ve flipped their lids.
Email/voicemail never finds
the teacher busy shaping minds.

P.S. There are so many wonderful male teachers, too, but “reach him” doesn’t rhyme with “teacher.” Sorry:>)
