Biology – Tribute

She sat silently

Listening to shuffling paper

Scratching pens

And sighing people.

The clock seemed to stop

Her brain stopped working

All she saw was

Lines, letters and empty space.

The boy infront

He knows it all,

Writing away feverishly.

To both sides people

Bend over their work,

Intent on getting it done.

She has finished already,

Half an hour to go,

Questions left blank,

Others made up.

She quessed most of it.

She doesn't care,

Its taking too long.

She's waiting to hear

Those precious words

'alright, pens down,

the exams over,

you can go.'
