Ode Of The Over Assessed

The Trials & Tribulations Of High School Junior Year!

thumbn_55118321I’m not a kid anymore,
Give me that college brochure!
I’m going far, far away,
What am I supposed to write on that college essay?

Take me on a college tour,
Oh, those tours are such a bore!
Have you thought about what you want to do?
What, I was thinking about my curfew!

SAT, ACT – I can’t take it anymore!
Can I go to college by the shore?
I’ll scream if I have to take another test,
I think I’m over assessed!

Tests, tests, tests, tests, tests.
We should protest!
The real world is not that hard,
No report cards!

Oh, I’ll need a car for senior year.
Oh don’t worry have no fear!
I know how to start the car,
Drivers Ed took me far!

Am I going to need all this in real life?
It’s all strife, strife, strife!
I can’t wait to get to college and graduate,
Oh no, now I’m worrying about a prom date…!

  1. It certainly is not easy being a high school junior – nor is it easy being the parent of one!
