Testing, testing
Oh yeah, no one is listening
Because I am not speaking
With perfect grammar, no conjunctions
Size twelve Times New Roman
I did not pass my test
With flying colours
Because the stress was too much
But give me homework
And I will do it with ease
Because then I have time
Constricted by 90 minutes
Get every question done
One question per minute
I feel limited
Why can I not take my time?
Testing, testing
I must admit
That I cannot express
My knowledge through a test
Because tests are much too easy
But my brain cannot comprehend
Each question, passing second
Give me an essay and I will write it
But these test questions seem violent
In my mind, I fight the confusion
Even though I know the subject
I cannot express my knowledge
And it is difficult
But I will pretend that I do not mind it
Testing, testing
I forgot that no one is listening
Because my voice does not matter
Unless it is a 95% or better
And my letter will be put to the side
Because it was not written
In Times New Roman, 12 point font
