Unpublished Roald Dahl poem discovered in school.


A primary school teacher from Dorset, England, has discovered a new poem by Roald Dahl that was written a year before the author's death.

Teacher Jenny Sibbald found the poem, which was sent to the school after a pupil wrote to Dahl telling him that he was their favourite author, as she prepared for a lesson on National Poetry Reading Day.

The poem, dated 21 June 1989 and never published, is about a sadistic teacher who twists the ears off pupils who cannot recall history dates. It now hangs in the entrance hall of the Priory Church of England school.
