A Messy Business

It's a messy business
this thing called teaching.
Flying books, 
Soaring papers,
Mountains of papers to grade

Scrambled desks,
Kids on the floor,
Kids in the hall
(No kids climbing the wall, thank goodness)

Whispering kids,
Whining kids,
Writing kids,
Reading kids.
Kids who should be there,
and some who shouldn't.

Do real working classrooms ever 
Really
Look like this?
