2005 / 05 / 21 - Failing A Test - Poem by A Poem A Day

In the class, you were like a guest
While the teacher was explaining to the rest
You were vaguing in your secret nest
Never putting your intelligence at test
Thinking you didn't have to invest
And keeping your energy for another quest.

Then you noticed the burden on your chest
So you squeezed your brains up to the zest.

But now, you didn't make it like the rest
And you failed your chemistry test
If you're angry, feel free to protest
But it's not like you did all of your best.
Your friends are all out now, having a fest
While you lay thinking, conscience not at rest.
