The Cruel Teacher

Photo by Jaspereology

I once had a teacher
Infamous, brilliant, and stern
For her, the grades didn’t matter
It’s the lessons I had to earn

I resented her for her cruelty
Her classes were held in the dark
She gave full points for mere effort
Still, it took years before I got the mark
