‘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!”
