“Service announcement- Warehouse colleagues to the warehouse please.”
All the jobs I could have done
This one sounds like so much fun
Making announcements in a store
Calling to workers on the shop floor.
Instead I write reports and mark
Plan my lessons until it is dark
My life is ruled by lessons and bells
Punctuated by rogues and ne-er do wells.
I wouldn’t want to be a zoo-keeper
A nurse, doctor or cabinet maker
I often dream of what might be
Acting in Coronation Street might suit me.
Instead I create my schemes of work
Make presentations that sometimes work
I smile with joy when students succeed
In our tough teens I still believe.
