    By our librarian, who mistakenly took the wrong toner when I was away...

    Whilst I was away from the school at a job interview, our librarian needed a new toner. She picked out the wrong one, and this is the poem she wrote of the event.

    Best read in a southwest accent.

    ODE TO TONER

    My printer needed toner; I knew what I must do,
    For Tony was in distant parts to start his life anew.

    I wandered to the cupboard so I wouldn’t be a bother
    But instead of getting Epson, I alighted on a Brother!

    I took it from its packet and to the library flew,
    But though I had the cyan, I still was feeling blue!

    I realised my error, I had the perfect hue,
    But a Brother ain’t an Epson, so what’s a girl to do?

    I returned it to its wrapper, replaced it on the shelf,
    I closed the door behind me and then removed myself.

    But my conscience kept on pricking me; I knew that I’d been bad,
    ‘Cos you mess with Tony’s toner and all you’ll feel is sad!

    And so I keep on ‘cyan’, for how things might have been
    If I hadn’t been a plonker, and kept my fingers clean!

    So please, forgive me Tony, I didn’t mean to do it’
    But when it comes to toner..........I think I went and ‘blue’ it!!!!

    If you read it in a Pam Ayres style, it is brilliant!

    +1 rep for your librarian!

    That's fantastic. Most staff would have just blamed me for having the wrong toner in stock.

    Brilliant if only all staff were so creative! Admission to taking something, humbleness, and an explanation all in one very well written poem - she should be published!
