Ragini’s Poem in his letter
My exams are going on. All my big ones are over (Math, Science, Social, Sanskrit); but we have Hindi (3rd Language) and Computer Science left. We had English Literature today, which went very well. Math is my least favorite subject.
I feel so tired, so bored;
As I hear the boy in the corner snore,
And looking at the question paper and half-filled answer sheet;
I feel like sleeping in the heat.
I watch the nerds sitting next to me
Already finished Problem thirty-three,
And me, you ask, where was I?
Stuck in Problem number five.
And then the teacher calls,
“Fifteen minutes left, you all!”
I start scribbling, horror-struck,
And half my problems I fluke and count on luck.
And then when our invigilator
Started collecting the papers,
I finally finished mine,
And I realized that I was just in time!
And then, how we celebrated!
‘Cause it was one more test finished,
Then I remembered there would be another misery tomorrow,
I would be sitting in Science Sorrow!
