Charles Chaim Wax Poems
No Expectation Of Reward
Being the union guy at Spinoza HS
created a morsel of interest to the day
like when Darwin Dix showed up
his hair a bunch of purple spikes
a good ten inches off his skull
held upright by some fancy gel
from Italy I never heard of.
Chairperson Linda wrote him up
declaring his appearance demented
thus hindering the children’s education.
“A poet don’t play by your rules, ”
I informed her, knowing the union had
gone to court on this one:
No dress codes for teachers.
Darwin wrote a poem in my honor:
The Real Big Boss of the Universe
sent it off, ...
A Teacher's Wisdom
All my students write about love
Such sweet wishes of young hearts
A lifetime of yearning
They will come to know
Is no guarantee
The matter will ever turn out
