The Night Before Finals This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   'Twas the night before finals

In a room of my house

I was sitting there studying the

Insides of a mouse



My lab book was open

To drawings galore

Of tissues and organs

And vessels and more!



My mind it was starting

To shrink and diminish

Do teachers expect us

To actually finish?



And now to the math book!

With Pheta and Pi

With cosine and tangent

And secant and sine



With formulas zooming

By more and more quickly

Soon I found myself feeling

More and more sickly



Now French! avec boeuf

Et jamon et la Beurre

(I think that means butter

But it might just mean beer)



And now history! With notes

Coming out of your ears

It's the most caffeine you've had

In a matter of years



In my English class (where

many farms have been bought)

The notes are so sparse

You can study with ease ... not!



Well, I'm getting too tired

To continue this labor

So I think I'll retire

And continue this later.
