Use this to key in student grades after logging in
Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
It's time to write, to start the rite
It's time to key in grades tonight,
For if I'm late, procrastinate,
They'll thump the ones who hesitate.
And so again I fetch my pen
The red one I use now and then
To do my chores and give out scores
And toss them out like apple cores.
Ah, click and clock! Ah, tick and tock!
Deadline slides like a shuttlecock
I type and tab, and not too shab,
I, class by class, etch on my slab
I pang, I pine! 12:59!
The last class grade slides in on time,
And, glad at heart, I've done my part
At midnight-ten, my dreams will start!
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

I think many teachers can empathize with this poem.
