Putting off studying, homework, and
Really big papers isn't a big deal, it's
Only one a.m. Wait, one a.m.?! Oh
Crap! I need to
Read this, practice that, and write
An essay! Now!
Study, study, study,
Type, type, type as the clock
Inches towards nine. I can do this, I have to do this, and I don't
Need sleep! Sleep is for the weak! I
Am a machine that runs on panicked desperation, designed
To catch all my scattered thoughts and shove them
Inside a masterfully organized and totally legible paper and
Oh, thank God! Submitted three minutes before the deadline!
Now, should I start that other paper due tomorrow? Nah, I have plenty of time.
