"The School Librarian" by Steven Herrick
from "Untangling Spaghetti" (University of Qld Press)

This is dedicated to all the school librarians.
Our librarian has long fingernails
And carries a brown leather bag
Drives a bright green sportscar
Loves the wind in their hair
Our librarian wears smart clothes
Strong colors
Black patent leather shoes
Our librarian has perfect skin
And a long ponytail
Our librarian has sparkling diamond earrings
And a big opal ring that flashes when they write on the board
Our librarian laughs a lot
Calls us "young lady" or "young man"
Never shouts, listens to everything we say
We love our librarian
His name is Mister Johnson

From stevenherrick.com.au:

Untangling Spaghetti is a collection of my favourite poems from my three books for children - poetry, to the rescue; my life my love my lasagne; and love poems and leg-spinners. It's a book I've been wanting to release for years as I perform many of these poems in my school show. At last, they are all in the one book! I thank University of Queensland Press for publishing them in such a neat package.
