Homework!!

(Sincere apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

 

 How do I loathe thee?  Let me count the ways.

Homework!!! Aaaagh!!!

Homework!!! Aaaagh!!!

I loathe thee to the depth and breadth and height

My fingers can stroke, when feeling out of sorts

For the ends of being a depressed overworked student.

I loathe thee to the level of every day’s

Most hated practice, by sun and candle-light.

I loathe thee freely, as men shun what’s right.

I loathe thee purely, because I turn from praise.

I loathe thee with the passion put to use

In my old theory book, and with my lack of faith.

I loathe thee with a loathing I seemed to share

With many lost classmates.  I loathe thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my schooling; and, if God choose,

I shall but loathe thee better after graduation.
