BULLIES


Porter--
First day--
"Welcome to school,"
As she talked with all the
Staff, no indication of
Problems.
First month,
Flew by,
Angry words hurt her
Staff, teachers so upset
That they would confide their pain..
And hurt.

Then the
Angry 
Outbursts began,
In hallways, staff meetings and,
Classrooms.

Respect--
Not there
For the teachers.
Morale declined, then fell
Off the charts, as teachers left for
New jobs.

Bullies...
So many...
Pervade and fill,
The ranks of school principals, and
Administrators in the U. S.
Bullies.
Why is
This thing 
Allowed to go
On, poisoning 
Our schools.
Porter 
Stayed for 
Two more years, then
A forced retirement sent her
Packing.
Porter,
Unkind,
Unprepared to,
Establish a quality
Educational setting
For kids.
Let down,
These kids,
Retreated and
Failed to get a good education.
Let down
By the system
Who allowed her to stay.
Her name should be engraved
on a Wall of Sham
