Haiku Friday: Texts and Tests

There are a lot of happy Baylor grads today (and a few not-so-happy grads), as bar results from the summer test came out yesterday. Overall, Baylor people did quite well, as about 94% of our first-time test takers passed and we ended up very close to finishing first in the state as a school.

Test-taking is something all of us have experienced, even those of us who have never taken the bar. It involves such complex and intense sensations-- the sound of chairs on the floor, the smell of freshly-sharpened pencils, the crispness of the test paper. All of which makes it perfect for haiku. Here is mine:

Breathing out... just then
I open up the book, smile
Breathe in, start to write...

Now it is your turn. Just follow the haiku formula of five syllables for the first line, seven for the second, and five for the third.

The best part of tests
Is never having to take
Them again, hooray!
What? The PC test
Has way too many answers
I pick, uh, "JJ"
Question Twenty-Two:
"What color is your lost cheese?"
Oh, business class!
Don't Forget Earplugs:

hundreds of laptops
thousands of fingers typing
sounds like rain on roof
Refresh, Refresh, Re-
Pass List is up! Control F.
I PASSED. So what's next?
PC 1 exam
irreparable injury
what just happened here
Five tests in one week
Plus MPRE Saturday
I just keep swimming
Sorry - tests be damned
I am smiling and happy
Best date of my life.
Baylor is second
At passing the Texas bar
Now how to sell it?
