My English teacher hates me

My English teacher hates me

My English teacher hates me,
I've noticed these past months,
After all my well meant questions,
Were received with inaudible grunts.

She smiles at other pupils,
And greets then with a spark,
I get a look from down her nose,
With a derogatory remark. 

The silence in her classroom, 
Is not from respect nor admiration,
It comes from discontentment,
Mixed with fear and sheer frustration 

If teachers are meant to be incompetent,

And tell you my dear madam
That your hate is far from unrequited 

My education is at stake here,

Thank you Tina, so glad you enjoyed it! I often find the best way for me to have a rant about someone you don't like is through rhyming insults!

Wonderful rhyming comedy! I must admit this is my favourite kind.
The humour seems so much funnier when its combined with a good rhythmic rhyme as you have done here.

Well done and welcome Emily

Hi Emily, this is amazing. Loved it to the T.it clearly defines sentiments of a child who faces silent cold treatment at the hands of her teacher. Teachers need to be unbiased or else they need to take up another profession.
well done love 💕 👏👏
