On my drop-off at school every day,
I notice the teacher has nothing to say
to my good mornings or have a good day.
I wonder if I’m not pleasant enough?
Or if my greeting comes off too gruff?
One day I went in a little too much,
and by her reaction I was totally crushed.
I shouted good morning loud and clear,
a little too loud, but everyone could hear.
With a frown and a smirk she just walked away.
I continue every morning to say –
‘Good morning teacher, have a good day!’
But still no response since the start of the school year.
Sometimes I pretend that I don’t even care,
when to other parents I can clearly hear –
‘Good morning, good morning and how are you today?’
It’s almost June and the school year ends soon,
So even though she ignores me
and sometimes the feeling gores me,
I have no qualms when I tell Miss Fell –
‘Good morning, Good morning!’ (until the school year ends).
