Tall Poppy


United States
40° 25' 19.002" N, 79° 53' 18.5352" W

Sitting in class,
I am the last
To leave the room.
Taking my test
(I know I'm best)
Mustn't assume
Perfection's mine
(I'm doing fine,
Savoring now
Knowing all things)
Confidence brings
Giddiness. (How?
Must I not boast?
I recall most;
I study well)
Checking with friends,
Cover all ends:
Failure is Hell.

Alone now, done -
This test was fun.
Not worrying
Made myself proud
(Now: say it loud!)
I aced this thing!
