In My Class

Ten eyes are fixed on me
Not all are with me
Only eight ears are with me
Lesson flows in and out
Of the other two alas!

Alas! where is the other two?

I would not bother of the other heads
Many times have I badgered words into their heads
I alone can’t quell lateness
Let their parents help
To stop absenteeism and unseriousness
