A Christmas Social Studies Poem

'Twas the month before finals, and all through each class
the students were praying for some way to pass.

The mobiles were hung by the windows with care
in hopes that a teacher would think they had flare.

The children were nestled all snug in their coats
as they tried to remember how to cite those darn quotes!

 They'd nearly concluded that life was too cruel
with futures depending on grades had in school.

When all of a sudden, the door opened wide
and patron saint Put-It-Off ambled inside.

"On Cliff's Notes, on Spark Notes, on last year's exams!
on noodlebib, on knightsite, on last minute crams!"

His message delivered, he vanished from sight
but we could still hear him laugh in the night:

"Your teachers have pegged you, so just do your best.
Happy finals to all and to all a good test!"
