Test Prep, In Verse


Photography by Caroline Nickerson

If you want to get an A on your next test,

Here are the ways you can prepare best:

Keep watching Netflix until your eyes hurt,

And stay in your bed in a comfy sweatshirt.

Take ugly selfies on your phone for hours

Because at this point, you have no willpower.

Wait to study until the clock says midnight,

Orgo can’t be too hard; am I right?

Or go out the night before your exam,

Then miss your alarm and blame all your friends.

Finally, I’ll tell you the best thing to do

Drumroll please, this will really help you.

Show up to class thinking it’s a normal day,

Then find out the test is worth half of your grade,

I hope you find this test prep to be great,

Nothing but good grades lie in your fate.
