Supernumerary Posts sound very attractive
With lots of free time on ideas to be active.
One thinks of experiments
Exploring the elements of childhood neurosis,
The basis of manias
And personalities miscellaneous.
But ‘ere you think of signing on
Ponder your motivation.
The initiative they say you’ll practice
You’ll find will daily deplete in fact as
Your time is all spent in communications
With those who make insinuations
That students are useless innovations.
A little time listening to childish prattle,
The rest in an inter-staff psychic battle !
