Performance

Published February 26, 2014 by mssprinkle

I am on stage

before an audience of fifth graders

in our classroom-cage

for hours on end every day.

Accountability is the buzz word

Everybody seems to have heard

How would you like to stand here

and meet forty narrowed eyes

(okay, 38 – Jakeen’s asleep)

They break my heart every year

and I have the summer to heal.
