The art of Candid

Candid is about honesty,

Bluntness and open frankness

These things that I am none of

Now this presents it’s problems

In Partent teacher inteviews

And phonecalls to said parents

As I find myself too often

Glossing over the “I owe yous”

The fact that your child had ten detentions

Morphs into “What a great young lad”

And the fact that your child always causes tension

Turns into “Ocassionally she can get a little mad”

If I could master the art of candid

I’d be able to be open handed

And tell my dear parents

The facts unrelentant

Then maybe I’d have less abberants

And some of the kids would be repentant
