'Twas the night before finals

Tue Nov 25, 2014, 7:36 PM
Journal





'twas the night before finals when all through the house
noisy creatures were stirring (squished many a mouse)
my stockings were holey from too many wears
had hopes that I'd find at least one decent pair
the answers were safely all tucked in my head
while visions of memory loss filled me with dread
my dog with his yelping and me with a cold
(this college thing really is getting quite old)
then out on my lawn I heard neighbors chatter
I rushed out to see what the heck was the matter
on the way out my door window broke
I tripped over Fido (was it all a bad joke?)
the moon overhead with it's odd, eerie glow
cast it's light on the problem down here below
when what to my weary eyes should appear
two flat tires in front, and one in the rear
how would I drive her, so listless and sick
I knew at that moment I'd better think quick
more rapid my heart as I dwelt on my plight
my neighbors now chuckled and grinned with delight
now dang-it, I said, to all who would listen
what I need now is help, not cynical dissin'
to the top of my class I've aspired since last fall
dash it! 
I won't let misfortune over me cast a pall
as dry leaves blown by a tornado fly
my neighbors now scattered without a goodbye
so back to the house I stormed in a rage
called the number pulled from the yellow book page
learned to my sorrow my Triple A had expired
was broke so called dad and asked would he wire
as I drew a deep breath I implored his response
he informed me he'd indulged enough of my wants
I got dressed for the cold and resolved now to walk
got up in the morning and rushed down the block
my large bundle of books I strapped to my back
(looked like an Eskimo with fish in his sack!)
my eyes were all bloodshot, my cheeks glowed bright red
my nose running madly, (my little toe bled)
the chill in the air did so chatter my teeth
the smoke from my breath like a dragon in heat
I felt a rumbling deep down in my belly
I'd forgotten to eat my bagel with jelly
I was hungry and tired but determined to win
to miss the exam was to commit mortal sin
I laughed when I realized all I'd been through
soon it would be over, my anxieties too
I arrived just on time despite bitter cold
the big clock chimed a tune (an old one I'm told)
I walked to the door when to my surprise
'twas locked, I wondered, and then I surmised
such folly, such folly, oh look what I've done

'tis Sunday today, my life's one big pun!
