The Test

“The Test,” New Era, Apr. 1972, 45

The Test

Hurry here, hurry there;

No time for fun.

Homework is waiting;

Assignments undone.

Meetings to go to;

Not enough sleep.

Can’t crawl out

For I’m in too deep.

And to top off the worry,

The pressure, the strife,

Is the panicky feeling

That I’m flunking life.
