Students During Exam Time

Published March 17, 2017 by tapasmi

Complaining about exams has
become a recurring theme.
Honestly, it’s not as big a deal
As kids sometimes make it seem.

“Easy for you to say!”
the senior students scoff
“Seventh graders have it easy-
You have nothing to complain of!”

Here’s the thing about exams:
They merely test our memory
Not much goes into our heads
When it’s all crammed in a hurry.

There’s that one poor bloke
Who toils through the pain
Receives the fruits of labour
In form of topping once again.

They leave the class aghast
In lieu of getting applauded
The jealous ones cry “Betrayer!”
In envious tones quite morbid.

But the most infuriating
Is the one who exlaims
They never bothered to study
Yet, the most marks they gain.

There’s the confusing lot
Who really couldn’t care less
sleeping through the school year
Exams? A load of pointless stress.

And when the hellish days cease
The kids all jump for ages
Until the scores return to haunt us
We all turn into praying sages.

Whatever the grade turns out to be
We vow to next time excel
But the cycle always repeats
Shall be the same next year as well.

Procrastination- Exam Problems

Published March 9, 2016 by tapasmi

procrastination

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. 😀

I’m Back! An apology poem-

I apologise quite dearly for

The inconvenience I’ve caused.

Well to be honest it’s not much

But a lot of precious time lost.

 

It’s been about a month (or two)

Since I’ve neglected my blog

But halt! I do have an excuse

I’ve been working quite a slog.

 

Now you may be sceptical

And wonder suspiciously how

A twelve year old is kept so busy

To that I shall give the answer now.

 

Exams! Yes, those deadly things

Which upon my brain were hacking

Wish I had the acumen to balance both

But for me, common sense is lacking.

 

But now that I’ve been released!

From this shackled vortex of toil

No more swotting up (for now)

My head in lesser of a coil.

 

My heart and soul is back

Devoted back to my little site!

Stay tuned for more poetry

(unless I forget- which I might.) 😛
