Greetings, readers! As my pre-mid term exams are starting from tomorrow, here’s a parody of William Shakespeare’s 55th sonnet, ‘Not marble, nor the Gilded Monuments‘. Enjoy!
Not losers, nor the toppers confident
Giving this exam, shall have an easy time,
And my red crosses shall shine brighter in these documents
Than answer books, besmeared with inky grime.
When tricky questions shall minds overturn
And marks root out the work of studentry,
Nor Einstein his brain nor Athena’s quick wit shall learn
The actual answers of this questionarry.
‘Gainst wrong and oblivious to the correct answer key
Shall my pen pace forth, your marks will not find room
Even in the eyes of CBSE*
That wears the students out to the ending doom.
So, till the results that term-end shall arise
You’ve got full marks, live in this fake paradise.
