One morning,very early in school,
two boys came running to prove me a fool.
Mrs. Asgar,they said,did you hear?
Tim Horton,is dead, we fear.
without thinking I said ,
‘who is he?’
Their eyes doubled upon hearing me.
My God they thought, how could she not know.
Tim Horton the greatest player on ice and snow!
Teachers are human, now we know.
She may not know the game of hockey,
but she knows quite well when we are cocky!
