Our Teacher’s a Football Fanatic
 
 


by Kenn Nesbitt
 
   
Our teacher’s a football fanatic.
It’s all that he has on his mind.
He listens to games on his headphones
and frets when his team is behind.

He jumps up and down when they’re winning.
He screams when they fumble a pass.
We know we’re supposed to be reading,
but watching him’s simply a gas.

Our principal walked in on Friday,
and he was too angry to speak.
Our substitute started on Monday.
Our teacher’s been benched for a week.
