Taking Tests On Mondays


Taking tests on Mondays
Ought to be against the law
Because it forces me to think
Before my brain can thaw.

My brain is like a block of ice
And school is like the sun
So it's almost always Wednesday
Before my thoughts can run.

Tuesday's just like Monday,
No need to mention more.
And on Thursday, when it gets in gear,
My brain's already sore.

Now, on Friday I am ready.
My brain is running great
As long as tests aren't early,
Or too hard or long or late.

Really, I guess the best day
To see what all I know
Is Saturday, but there's no school
Oh well, that's how it goes!
