The College Student’s Twelve Days of Christmas

M. Fennell

12/91

 

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my college gave to me:

Twelve unread textbooks
Eleven cups of coffee
Ten page reports
Nine pillow fights
Eight dollars to live on
Seven noisy neighbors
Six signs of stress

Five courses passed

Four final exams
Three hours sleep
Two dull pencils
and a ticket on a plane home.
