If you’re anything like me,
You might be facing a quandary
You’re someone who enjoys school
But exams merely induce worry.
Like me, however much you adore
And appreciate all education
When it comes to swotting it all-
You’re forced into frustration.
So any time I sit to study
I’ll concentrate with all my heart…
Hah! What a terrible joke-
I’ll hardly ever care to start.
I’ll procrastinate for all I care
Without truly intending to
But you never know you see,
When something distracts you.
Suddenly the most trivial of things
Seem a major issue to fix-
Whether it’s a picture frame gone wonky
Or unarranged paper grips.
It may be in the form of hunger-
Where rather than learning sums
You find the need to feast upon
A plate of tea and cocoa buns.
And all this seems fun and good
But you know it’s all in vain
Whatever you do to avoid it-
You can’t postpone the pain.
It might be twelve at midnight
When the sky is dim and dark
You get amply tensed to study
And you’ll regret it when you start.
So when you sit the test all groggy
You’ll vow to never procrastinate
But it’s really the student life
You’ll probably make the same mistake. 😀
