To All Members Of Staff - Poem by Ray Mather

Rachel’s mother has recently written
Her letter is pinned over there
Rachel’s father has been very ill
And has been moved to Intensive Care
The doctors are fearing the worst
That he hasn’t much longer to go
So mother thought it important
That staff who teach Rachel should know
Rachel’s a sensitive child
And is likely to appear upset
But don’t be over-protective
As she’s not fully aware just yet
Oh, before you go to register
I’ve one more thing to say –
We’re clamping down on the wearing of jewellery
And the campaign begins from today
