Thank Heaven for Essays!

Thank heaven for essays!
Their dull points repeated
In longwinded phrases;
Their dull topics greeted
With groans and with sighs
And with loud cries of, “FICTION!!”
– Thank heaven for essays,
And then promptly nix ‘em.

Good thing each idea
Is stated sixfold;
It’s lucky the topics
Will NEVER get old;
How lovely, these essays!
(These matches should light ‘em)
– Thank heaven for essays,
No more shall I write ‘em.

Wow, thank you! :) Ah, and they said nothing good would ever come of being snarky. Then again, "they" refers to my parents, and where do they think I got it from, anyway? ;)

I would do the same (and probably have, now that you mention it). I like it, even though I do like school essays. I'm probably too sarcastic and blunt for my own good.

Why, thank you. As my dad says, snarkiness is a specialty of mine. ;P I actually showed this to the writing teacher who kept giving us essays. Surprisingly, he didn't get mad. But he gave us another one anyway. :
