               Bad Weather

They’re predicting a big term paper
due to hit here on Monday morning.

Tuesday the forecast looks real bad:
intense DOL and grammar drills.

Wednesday will be a scorcher
when the state writing test arrives.

Thursday there’s a high probability
of five-paragraph essays.

Friday should bring some relief
when scattered poetry blows in.
