The Teacher (Poem by C. J. Dennis)

C. J. Dennis Poem

The Teacher
By C. J. Dennis


I'd like to be a teacher, and have a clever brain,
Calling out, "Attention, please!" and "Must I speak in vain?"
I'd be quite strict with boys and girls whose minds I had to train,
And all the books and maps and things I'd carefully explain;
I'd make then learn the dates of kings, and all the capes of Spain;
    But I wouldn't be a teacher if...
        I couldn't use the cane.
           Would you?
