Mr Monster Maths

Each morning at school we knew who’d arrived:
A good night behind him and fully revived!
One look from that face and we’d shake in our shoes –
      And even a glance could mean truly bad news.

Excuses?  Not wanted and neither were lies.
A mathematics teacher and the devil disguised.
     Late for his lessons?  Oh no – quite absurd!
     Excuses for lateness would never be heard.

Peace reigned supremely.  We did well in our tests
For Monster, our teacher, drew from us our best.

     In a world short of work, should we give him our thanks?
     Well, without Monster Maths there’d be nowt in our banks.
