Study (Perfect)

Angst ridden


In tears

Wait for me to finish

Three, Four, Five

Wait for me to finish

Algebra, Geography, Bio

I'll just keep working

I don't have to stop

Until I'm perfect

Six, Seven, Eight

Time slips away

A, B, A

I'll raise that B

No more fun

Until I'm perfect

Nine, Ten, Eleven

"The capital of Uruguay?"

Book report

I'll read that book

I can't be dishonest

Twelve, One, Two

"An example of irony?"

I have to go to bed

Before I faint

I can't stay awake

Three, Four, Five

And I forget it all

I scrawl my answers

Across the page

Until they're perfect

Three, two, one
