Educators’ Lament


We’re dedicated teechers, we learn ‘em good each day

They construe us just like data, it causes us dismay

Our profession strives for status, we self-medicate with wine

Anzela is our saviour – its conference sublime!

The world seems now so vexing, complexity prevails,

Performance indicators all round, increasing our travails

Governments more demanding, parents routinely complain

Students are revolting and budget pressures drain

They don’t want Samuel Becket – causes morale to drop.

They do want Taylor Swift - celeb gossip lifts them up

Thank goodness for Anzela, two days away from strife

We’re learning about conflict, the DNA of life

Lawyers want to sue us, say we don’t practice right,

Judges, albeit honourable, don’t understand our plight

The fault is always on our side, we’d judge them if we could

Edukayshun’s now so complex, but we try and learn them good

We’re dedicated teechers, we learn ‘em good each day

They construe us just like data, it causes us dismay

Our profession strives for status, we self-medicate with wine

Anzela is our saviour – its conference sublime!

--ANZELA Conference, Auckland, 28-30 September 2016
