“Stand tall girls, girls stand tall” said she
This figure in my memory
All clad in jumper black with white
Her nasal tone would give a fright !
Gym teachers wore no curly hair
There was no inspiration there
Her glasses sat upon her nose
Her hands on waist her normal pose.
She was a figure much intense
She taught us well, in her defense
For all these years she does remain
This voice that echoes in my brain
Before I walk out my front door
“Stand tall girl” is my last encore !
