You Fail - Poem by Cúcídh Mac Cuagh

To be three months hereafter and it concluded,
All this nonsense, gratuitous knowledge included,
Of little relevancy these essays germane,
To Dev, Uncle Jo and Adolf- ‘inhumane’.

“You must to it” said the teacher, and no more of it,
Two short years have we to get a grasp on't.
And if you don’t know why they won the election,
To bad for you, it’s natural selection,
You fail.

King Lear, Othello, Mac Beth and Hamlet,
Oedipus too I don’t understand it,
That’s mechanics, Newton, and the laws of motion,
The Faraday Cage, know these and get a promotion;
If you don’t,
You fail.

Fluvial, glacial and marine processes,
Destructive plate boundaries, you must access.
Two languages more, then to university get,
Depends on here two years, we have only five left.

All this must you learn, and vomit out in one day.
If you empty reach, you fail.
