Twas the night before midterms
When all through town
The children all procrastinated
Trying not to make a sound

By ten everyone was on Facebook
Up on their bed
They idea of studying
Filling them with dread

Tumblr, Snapchat, Instagram too
All sounded better than the studying they had to do
By one in the morning the children looked at their clocks in fright
For midterms were today and they had wasted the night
