A School Stewards Poem

Unison, Zoom, WhatsApp Group and Me

In compliance with the country’s health orders,

Restricting in-person meetings, restrictions on boarders.

We meet via Zoom a collection of characters,

Righting the wrongs of the education parameters.

Checking our emails for the details of the link,

Carol at the helm, making us think.

Coffee brewing, pens and notes pads ready,

Janet looks for her glasses, “oh there on her head already”.

One member in the group chillaxes to music from Tom Jones,

Then we have Kim quietening her dogs with their loud overtones.

Identifying the wrongs, keeping our members in schools safe,

That’s the job of us stewards a harmonious work place.
