I wonder what a teacher is like,
When she is not in school?
Is she like what she is in a classroom?
Or as the day moves on, becomes a bit cool?
Does she teach her kids?
The same way she teaches us?
And makes them stand with hands right up
When they make their homework a fuss
Does she gorge on junk food too?
And watches movies till late
Or does she stay up all night
Marking the papers she has to grade?
Has she ever forgotten her textbook?
And made a silly excuse?
Maybe faked a fever
Or an artificial bruise?
I wonder what a teacher is like.
When she is not in school
I promise I will ask one day
Even if I look like a fool
