Had a teacher like that
with a lean and hungry look,
full of passion and determined,
he built literary warriors,
each of us, once blundering,
adolescent fools,
he made wise in awareness
and able to think.

For Express It In Eight, 10.14.21
Prompt: Lean and hungry look.
Note: Had to write this on reading Jaya’s. Her professor sounded just like Johnny Bridle (who is the subject of this poem). Thank you, Jaya.
