Perspectives: 68/365

Robert Woods (A Local Dude)

They don’t get paid enough
For what they deal with.
Parents have no idea what goes on at school
At practice,
On the fields and courts,
Or on-line.

I see it on the bus,
The kids who throw stuff out the window,
The ones who just stare absently,
The video game types,
And the ones who tease, play around with, or
Make fun of others.

I’m kind of like the janitor in The Breakfast Club,
But the bitch of it all
Is that many of the kids
Have just enough Eddie Haskell in them
To pull the wool over their parents’ eyes.
Maybe parents are just wearing horse blinders.

Coaches and teachers don’t want to put up with the bullshit,
A kid doesn’t do right, the coaches tell them,
Some yell,
Some curse,
Some get right in a kids face,
And there are just as many who don’t.

From my driver’s seat,
They don’t get paid enough
And I’m not talking money
Because money is not real currency
I’m talking about something more valuable,
