‘Twas the Night Before Finals

by JENNY GREEN

‘Twas the night before finals and all through the school

The students were cramming, even the fools

Their papers were typed and written with care

In hopes that Christmas break soon would be there

The first years were studying and sleep deprived in their dorms

While Ravine residents chugged Red Bulls, and took part in brainstorms

And I with my coffee and holding back a yawn

Prepared to review notes ‘til the coming of dawn

On cue cards! On Sparknotes! On ramen noodles!

On any chance of that B, I say to you, toodles!

Find a way, find a way, I just need to pass

Please, anything not to have to retake that class!      

Suddenly from my bed, there arose such a clatter

I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter

I answered my phone and to the lobby I went

To go and meet with my personal Godsend

He was dressed in black and blue and red

With the Dominos logo on the hat on his head.

His eyes, they didn’t twinkle and his dimples weren’t merry

The word on his nametag read in tiny letters ‘Terry’

While the mouth watering aroma wafted from his square pack

I handed him the green and he gave me my snack

And out the door he went, calling as he drove out of sight

“Happy finals to all and to all a good night!”
