Finals.... boo

Twas the night before finals,
And all through the college,
The students were praying
For last minute knowledge.

Most were quite sleepy,
But none touched their beds,
While visions of essays
Danced in their heads.

Out in the taverns,
A few were still drinking,
And hoping that liquor
Would loosen their thinking.

In my own room,
I was constantly pacing,
And dreading exams
I soon would be facing.

My roommate was speechless,
Her nose in her books,
And my comments to her
drew unfriendly looks.

I drained all the coffee,
And brewed a new pot,
No longer caring
that my nerves were all shot.

I'd nearly concluded
That life was too cruel,
With futures depending
On grades earned in school.

When all of a sudden,
our door opened wide,
And Patron Saint Put-It-Off
Ambled inside.

His spirit was careless,
His manner was mellow,
All of a sudden,
He started to bellow...

"On Cliff notes, on Crib Notes On last year's Exams.
On Wing-it and Sling-it And Last Minute Crams."

His message delivered
he vanished from sight.
But we heard him laughing
Outside in the night.

"Your teachers have pegged
you So just do your best.
Happy Finals to All
And to all a Good Test."
