Reducing and solving I'm expected to know.

After all these quizzes, I'm still not a pro,

But don't look now, it's just about here;

A brand new topic to leave you in fear.

All this homework is really a bore!

And that test I got back has a very low score.

Numbers and letters really don't gel.

Why is my life a nightmarish hell?



Is it root 2 or is it root 3?

Tell me the difference that I don't see.

Equations, expressions, equalities, and roots;

My mind's in a boggle-

I don't give a hoot!

Important it is that I pass this course.

How can a teacher feel no remorse?

Why must I learn this math so abstract?

I'll never use it, and that's a fact!!
