In response to one-word Prompt : Proclivity
I have a proclivity to watch children whom I teach,
One thing I noticed they have their likes and dislikes.
One year I noticed a girl assigned to me hated school,
I told the principal, ‘I think I’ll have problems with her.”
He looked at me in awe, ‘but you didn’t start teaching yet,’
‘I know,’ I said, ‘my sixth sense alerts me she’d give me trouble.’
He advised me to see her parents, he said, ‘they will cooperate.’
I saw the parents, talked to them, they smiled and looked at each other.
This is what they said, ‘We are surprised, because it’s true,
she really hates school!’
