I used to spend all day
Just playing with my calculator.
Game after game, I could
Never be bored.
But then that test came.
The teacher said use nothing.
Just your brain and the pencil,
No need for batteries
or pushing buttons.

Dodgeball, avalanche, tetris,
All these I missed.
But I had to focus
Only on my test.
Sin 30, Cos 45, and tan 60,
All these I knew.
The nice trig theorems,
Well they could only help me as well.

I came up to the last problem
And saw Pi over 4.
And Pi over 4 would equal 45.
So 45 was my answer and
Then I knew was done.
But then that’s when I heard,
“You may use your calculators, class.”
