Fifth September Selection 2012

It’s probably just as well that I fell into a coma
as I came dangerously close
to entering the classroom 
and teaching by example
which means that I'd walk through the door chanting
proceed to the black board
and commence writing until
blackboards ran out and into walls
walls ran out and into doors
doors met floors
until hopefully others would join in 
to rewrite reality 
until the period was over
until our time ran out
Of course it’s possible someone would play God
and fire me first
But I'm pretty confident that someone else would go crazy
and pick up where we left off
