My annual school prayer

please grant me

a slab of slate
a chunk of chalk

a live critter
a dead ego

a magnet
a marble

curious children
and a sundial's sense of time.

How sleep the brave who sink to rest,
By all their country's wishes blest!

...always mistrust a subordinate who never finds fault with
his superior ~ W. Collins 1721-1759
