Teachers are the only people willing to stay in school indefinitely.  Tyler Perry in these unflinching poems presents a no-holds-barred glimpse at the working life of a contemporary teacher, based on his experiences as an instructor at a Calgary junior high school.  Employing several poetic modes including prose-poem, anecdote, ghazal, incantation and more, Perry masterfully allows the reader to share his insider’s insights into the physical settings of hallway and classroom, the high energy swirl of his students, and especially the pain, fear and triumphs generated by the educational process itself. (Tom Wayman, author of Did I Miss Anything and Woodstock Rising)
