It's finals season for us quarter system sufferers.
And you know what that means...
Procrastination: a phenomenon that persists in publics and privates alike.
Recognized but rarely reviled,
Often obligatory, but occasionally the opposite.
Clocks commence their countdowns to complex, confusing, cumulative exams.
Rigorous review and research rallies round up
An abysmal amount of amateurs.
Survivors seemingly scheduling study sessions but seriously
Taking out the trash and trying to tear their thoughts away from time.
Initiating ill-advised Instagram inspection,
Negotiating the need to navigate Netflix,
And airily avoiding the agony in the air;
Turning down the theory of tests tampering with
Excitement, enjoyment, entertainment, and everything else excellent.
That is, until the test scores come in.
And now, I must take my leave,
For I am one of these such students
Who has fallen, like the best of us,
To the tantalizing clutches of procrastination.
