My Teacher Loves Her iPod

by Bruce Lansky

My teacher loves her iPod.
It’s always in her ear.
She doesn’t mind it if we joke
or chat ’cause she can’t hear

If we don’t pay attention,
she doesn’t seem to care.
Whenever she has music on,
she wears a distant stare.

Our principal dropped by one day,
and she paid no attention.
He took away her iPod,
and he sent her to detention.
