> Here's a classic one to get those of you still in school through the
> nightmare...
>>Twas the night before finals,
>>And all through the college,
>>The students were praying
>>For last minute knowledge.
>>Most were quite sleepy,
>>But none touched their beds,
>>While visions of essays
>>danced in their heads.
>>Out in the taverns,
>>A few were still drinking,
>>And hoping that liquor
>>would loosen up their thinking.
>>In my own apartment
>>I had been pacing,
>>And dreading exams
>>I soon would be facing.
>>My roommate was speechless,
>>His nose in his books,
>>And my comments to him
>>Drew unfriendly looks.
>>I drained all the coffee,
>>And brewed a new pot,
>>No longer caring
>>That my nerves were shot.
>>I stared at my notes,
>>But my thoughts were muddy,
>>My eyes went ablur,
>>I just couldn't study.
>>"Some pizza might help,"
>>I said with a shiver,
>>But each place I called
>>Refused to deliver.
>>I'd nearly concluded
>>That life was too cruel,
>>With futures depending
>>On grades had in school.
>>When all of a sudden,
>>Our door opened wide,
>>And Patron Saint Put It Off
>>Ambled inside.
>>Her spirit was careless,
>>Her manner was mellow,
>>She started to bellow:
>>"What kind of student
>>Would make such a fuss,
>>To toss back at teachers
>>What they tossed at us?"
>>"On Cliff Notes! On Crib Notes!
>>On Last Year's Exams!
>>On Wingit and Slingit,
>>And Last Minute Crams!"
>>Her message delivered,
>>She vanished from sight,
>>But we heard her laughing
>>Outside in the night.
>>"Your teachers have pegged you,
>>So just do your best.
>>Happy Finals to All,
>>And to All, a good test."
