Studying at Seven When UP is On

(I originally wrote this for a creative writing class in 2012.)

.

It isn’t easy to study today

When life around me only wants to play

With what little patience and mental power

Is left by evening’s seventh hour.

.

I thought I’d set my phone to vibe, not ring!

My roommate in the shower likes to sing.

No one on Facebook will leave me alone—

I might as well have answered the phone!

If I don’t finish this study time rhyme,

I can forget graduating on time.

My studying still isn’t going well;

I wish I could watch a movie, or—Squirrel!
