"Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies."

The clock is ticking, ticking mocking the stressed out students
It doesn’t stop; class is ending soon
Where are you going time? We need you!
The teacher is standing over students, over the stressed out students
Take me with you time! Away from this math test!
I will go with you! I will be girl-who-doesn’t-want-to-take-a-math-test!
Into summer! The amazing summer and the girl

The students are writing, writing as fast as they can
Bubbling in A, Bubbling in C, answering a BCR
Where are you going test? But please stay away, far far away
Beyond question 10, nearing the end
Take this test with you class! The teacher says
But wait! Class hasn’t even- BBRRIINNGG!!

Into my binder the math test goes, the white paper of the test and my binder

In the hallway the students come running, past the classrooms
The students are pushing, the teachers stop them
Where do you think you’re going? Lunch detention it is!
Into the classroom at lunch we go, with the juvenile delinquents and the bullies
Take me with you friends! O take me to the cafeteria!
I will go with you! To anywhere but here!
In the cafeteria, the cafeteria and the girl

Dismissal lies at the end of the day. The students are ecstatic with joy!
I am coming mom! I am running to your car through the throngs of students!
O take me with you! Away from this prison!
Far away to our home!
For I am ready to relax!
The TV! Oh crap, I have homework…
