Apple For The Teacher


One of Professor Assessor’s pupils brought in an apple one day,

(Although it had a grub in it, he ate it anyway).

Professor Assessor crunched a bite,

Just a bit sour, but it tasted alright !

The grub was really an intelligent chap,

(Who had been studying apples and gone for a nap).

Hardly expecting Professor Assessor to take a crunch,

He thought he was going for, not going out to be lunch.

Ever since being a tiny grub,

He’d always wanted to be an intelligent slug.

His pal, the bookworm, in Professor Assessor’s school,

Often came over for a chat, though it broke the school rules !
