Staying Up

Last night my homework confused me
so I had to stay up late
it took me so long to find the key
doing homework is something I hate

I didn’t have that much to start
I could go to bed at a good time
I thought that I was playing it smart
but I forgot to read the print that was fine

I gave my work an unsuccessful try
and so I sat there confusedly
I decided that I would probably die
before I was finished truly

I called two friends for some insight
luckily they both came to my aid
to me they both sounded so bright
they would help me get a good grade

Their insight really helped me out
and finally I had finished
I was so relieved that I could shout
but my spirit had been diminished

So last night I didn’t sleep much
I was in bed at two instead of ten
tonight I have more homework and such
I hope this doesn’t happen again
