YEARNING FOR KNOWLEDGE

Before forty pupils, the teacher stands
Before the folk that she now understands.
She first considers them with an inquisitive, assuring eye
And with a tone full of mirth, passes a greeting.
The knowledge-hungry souls reply in unison
Gauging her with awe and reverence
Their eyes flickering with wonder and expectation
And the teacher, so filled with love for her flock
Delivers forth the cherished stuff-bit by bit
As the insatiable souls gape their minds for more.
She confidently stands for eighty eyes to peck at
Acting as a torch light to split the darkness
In the dark portals of this intricate the world of wit.

TEACHER, DEAR TEACHER

Dear Lindah,

Thanks for viewing the subject through this angle, it is quite satisfying and explanatory though those who did not pass through our own style of education may begin to wonder about the 160 eyes gazing at one teacher.

We so much appreciate our teachers upon the ideas generated by our present leaders who want to frustrate the public teachers in Africa sotha tpoor children lkie ours will have no access to education and only the very expensive private schools built by past presidents and new church leaders (who charge the student fees equivalent to dollars especially in Nigeria) will be in existent and our children will be hawking on the streets and later on be these wicked leaders slaves.

Thanks to our selfless teachers especially those who are in the profession for the sake of passion and the masses.

Your rewards are not in heaven only but in heaven and on earth here.Our teachers, may your children live long and become leaders not like these present leades who are dealing wickedly with us.
