In the quiet testing hour
stranded in a cramped desk
waiting anxiously to get started
quiet whispers all to rest . . . a-hem!
directions read word for word"any questions?" it boldly quips
pages turning, pencils rapping
"ready to begin" says the script . . . a-okay!
feet swaying, shoes tapping
brains churning, thinking and more
scratching the head, tugging the hair
eyes wide open, mouths to the floor . . . a-ha!
eyes still sleepy, puffy red
lingering stubborn winter . . . a-choo!
sniffling noses, dripping too
coughing, sneezing all for tissues
pencils scribbling, scrawling, scratching
all the work there is to do
pink nubs removing and erasing until
circles enclosed with a hopeful response that's true . . . a-yes!
shaking legs of uncertainty
raising the hand, nods of completion
sighs of relief - the test booklet turned inone day done . . . a-men!
