In an average classroom, in an average town, on an average afternoon it is not only the pupils who are starting at the clock longing for the bell to ring. The teachers are waiting too...
THE PUPIL CONTROL GADGET
Science teacher Robert West
built a gadget which when pressed
caused consternation far and wide
by zapping pupils in mid stride.
It froze all motion stopped all noise
controlled the rowdy girls and boys
and on fast forwards was great fun.
It made them get their schoolwork done
their hands a blur their paper smoking
with teachers cheering laughing joking.
And on rewind that too was nice
you could make them do their schoolwork twice.
Robert now a millionaire
is selling gadgets everywhere.
Timid teachers pupil bossed
pay cash and never mind the cost.
