Poems of the PhD 2

Teachers, are you a subject of the market?
Ready to run away from responsibility
At the slightest sign of something you don’t agree with?
Or resilient?
Getting through the tough times
And knowing there will be more.
But I wonder
Do your superiors
Or your school
Or the corporation
Feel that same way towards you?
Would they stick with you until they understood
Or be gentle, knowing that every day
Every year
Every class
Every period
Was different?
Or would they force you to change
Pick out your deficiencies
And make them open to the world
Under the guise of “community”?
