THE GUARD WHO WOULD TEACH ENGLISH
(Instead of being king..per Rudyard Kipling!)
The tutor likes his poetry,
Asking to use occasionally…
But he jumps the gun
To a pupil for its meaning to see.
This working Japanese adult,
Finds English somewhat difficult…
The guard enlisted
Education which assisted,
This gentleman to work the thing out!
Among some very big words,
Was respect for cultures we’ve heard…
Won’t bring any shame,
The employee is shown their worth!
–Jonathan Caswell, M.S.E. ’83.
