Example Poem

Teacher’s Pet

Looking at your rear
is why I come to class.
I’ve never yet read the board.
I’d rather watch your ass.
I am always here;
I’ll never miss.
I want to be clear,
while still not being crass.
Watching you, I can’t get bored.

My grades are great.  I pass
for an engineer.
It’s just that this
boy wants you
to touch and kiss.
My meager veneer
becomes most underclass
when close; you are so adored.
Your shape’s an hourglass.
I try not to leer.

I love the bliss
of this view
my dear.
It is true
I’d be amiss
were that not true. We’re
married. Yet, I trespass
voyeuristically – ignored,

by teacher with smartass
hubby volunteer
here to assist,
yes, and to
be near
you.
