As Finals Week Approaches

Exhausted Student Falling Asleep While Cramming

As finals week approaches, you hear many strange things

Of syllabi, papers nigh, and grades that terror brings.

The professor sees a gaping lack

Of those who sit in seats far back

To them I’d say, “Why run away,

And who’s paying for your slack?”

Then there are those who count

Every jot and tittle

Adding amounts of points, percents,

and noticing errors so little.

Some say that in five years or so

Nobody will care or know

Your scores from finals week.

Of this I think…and weep.
