Drink and Teach in Sanford And Go to Jail

We all know that a good education is needed to get ahead
Imagine the outrage when a substitute teacher shows up drunk instead
Holly Joel, aged 52
Must have been nipping an early morning brew
Pity the poor second graders who were exposed
Slurred speech, wobbly legs, disheveled hair and clothes
Holly showed up to teach at an elementary school in Sanford in the Sunshine State
Oblivious to the fact that after being observed, arrest and jail would be her fate
Normal people do not get drunk before going to work and a bottle of booze into the workplace bring in her purse
But normal people are fortunate enough to not be afflicted with a deadly addiction curse
If she is addicted which after looking at her mug shot is probably the case
Her teaching career has gone to seed, her schooling a total waste
One can only hope that the judge before whom she appears to be arraigned
Has rehab on his or her mind instead of a cell in which she is to be for some time contained.
