My Teacher Calls Me Sweetie Cakes
Buy the book Revenge of the Lunch Ladies
My teacher calls me sweetie cakes.
My classmates think it’s funny
to hear her call me angel face
or pookie bear or honey.
She calls me precious baby doll.
She calls me pumpkin pie
or doodle bug or honey bunch
or darling butterfly.
My class is so embarrassing
I need to find another;
just any class at all
in which the teacher’s not my mother.
