A humorous poem I wrote to reflect the angst that comes with studying over Christmas. It's written Seussian style, and should not be taken all that seriously :3 Enjoy!

You have no idea, my friend, how much this means to me. The relations made to my own life are ridiculous! I mean, I think she's like my younger clone or something... 'cept I'm from Texas. :P Also i will think of this next year, the (apparently) hardest year in school. Thanks!

This so funny and cute. But a 5th year student having 5 essays to write? Dang! That sounds rough. Love this piece, either way. Congrats! :)

Dearest Writer, How grateful I am to find a person who has flitter and flam! The words you chose so sweet and cold. It makes me want to speak in code! I may not be able to rhyme so well I'm still wondering what's that smell? The smell of genius the taste of victory. Hope you write again dearest writer.

This has me laughing and nodding the whole read through it- love this poem so much! It really captures everything truthful about exams and stuff and winter. :)

This was fantastic! I love how you juxtaposed a playful, Dr. Seuss type style with the actual depressing nature of schoolwork over break. Honestly, you portrayed exactly how I feel right now with lot of humorous quirks, which I especially appreciate. The best part for me was all of the references; I was really excited when I understood Bismarck and calculus and whatnot. My only criticism would be the fourth line, when you say "and sit on this tack". For some reason, it seems a little off in the whole scheme of things, but it really doesn't hinder the writing or anything. Just a personal preference. Anyways, thanks for such a funny, connectable reading... now back to studying for me! :)
