The Teacher

his hands are in a cage

his eyes are covered with flags

his mouth is filled with blood

he goes to work

he comes home

he feeds his family

he leaves for his meeting

he designs bombs

he helps create nerve gas

he flies in a plane

dropping chemicals on the people

there is no excitement in it

he dreads every single day

he wishes he were dead

he kills the children

to teach the parents a lesson

and in time they do learn

in time they learn
