Lazy Teacher


You are dressed on a black coat
and walked in magesticaly
like a demigod of old.

You shut the door with a
command and yet not satisfy
with population at hand.

You walk around discerning
appearance. ''When i was like
you'' begins your jagons.

You praise yourself.
Yet none as written anything
about you on the shelf.

Until you are through,
when you talk i barely walk
when you walk i can't talk.

And when you go,
you fulfil no goal
and i have nothing to hold.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
