Daily Prompt : Relieved

In response to one-word prompt : Relieved

I applied for a job when we came to Gander,

He told me, if I substitute I’d get one faster.

Unimpressed my husband told me to quit,

Sitting at home unhappy, cost me my wit.

Then I got a call from a school supervisor,

He wanted to know if I became any wiser.

I said, ‘unemployment is hurting my brain.’

He said, ‘let me see if I can relieve your strain.’

Then he magically got me a fascinating job,

‘Would you like to teach grade fours,’ asked Mr. Bob.

I told him, ‘I’m relieved, and  pleased to get this offer.’

And so started my long and arduous teaching career!

  1. Very apt connotations of the word “relieved”. Indeed, not having to do anything can hurt one’s brains and it must have been a great relief to get the opportunity of teaching kids. I’m sure that the kids also felt relieved to have such a nice teacher 🙂
