Stubborn Teachers - Poem by Charlotte Ballard

(inspired by Stubborn Students)
Locked doors
Closed windows
(each stanza like this)

born Teachers
born Students
Cries in pain
Heads against wall
Gnashing teeth
Stomping feet
Book are open
Minds are closed
Stubborn Teachers
Stubborn Students.
Pushing harder
With each day
One step forward
Two steps back
Spitballs flying
Airplanes sailing
Stubborn Teachers,
Stubborn Students
One thing wrong
And off you go
Toe the line
Things will be fine
Minds wander
A fuzzy way
A teacher speaks
A student sleeps
Stubborn Teachers,
Stubborn Students.
