The Lady Whines a Lot

– Sonja Foust

With apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s The Lady of Shalott.

Buried in the pillows lies
A tired student, about to cry.
She memorized 100 lines
(Or will have, when the hour is by)
For stupid, stupid English class.
And up and down her hall-mates go
Gazing blankly, walking slow
While exams do suck and blow
And they all feel like ass.
