The Caretaker

takes care of the windows

and care of the floors

care of the car park

and care of the doors

 

care of the dustbins 

and care of the walls

care of the playground

and care of the halls

 

care of the fixtures

and fittings and locks

care of the toilets

and care of the clocks

 

care of the building

with never a fuss

and care of the school

that takes care of us.
