|Roberta had just sat down to relax, then remembered she had another set of Year 8 books to mark.|

Evidence that spending all day marking gives rise to shorter poems than usual
Monday’s teacher is pale of face
Tuesday’s teacher is slower of pace
Wednesday’s teacher is kind of dragging
Thursday’s teacher is constantly nagging
Friday’s teacher is mean and tough
Saturday’s teacher can’t sleep enough
But the teacher that marks all the Sabbath day
Is a gibbering wreck and deserves more pay ....
