A Teacher’s Prayer

A teacher's prayer
A teacher's prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray that I won’t oversleep.

I’ve stayed up late grading tests
And don’t see how I’ll get my rest.

I pray that I won’t get a cold—
My sub plans all are way too old!

Please, dear God, don’t make it rain—
I have bus duty! (What a pain)

And lastly Lord, I humbly pray:
Make my coffee hot all day!
