Teaching Is Like A Gas

Teaching is like a gas,
it expands to fill any and all available space,
taking up every spare minute of your time
if you let it,
but it can be compressed,
condensed down into a container
of manageable size
if you have the will,
and are prepared to accept that
some molecules will always escape
no matter how hard you try.
