Don't come to KY now

by InnerTurmoil


Don't come here now for sunshine and warmth.
Don't come here now for good cheer round the hearth.

I advise to steer clear of this whole campus.
The professors have driven the students to madness.

Finals are here.
Awful weather joins to.

My advice to you.
Don't come round here now.

I know this doesn't all ryhme but this is what it's like in Midway College right now!!

Don't come here now for sunshine and warmth.
Don't come here now for good cheer round the hearth. <--- I would delete this stanza, because it really doesn't add a lot to the poem.

I advise to steer clear of this whole campus. <--- I like how long and convoluted it sounds! Very academia like, though I think you can overexaggerate this and make it even better.
The professors have driven the students to madness. <-- Explain how.

Finals are here.
Awful weather joins to. <--- Edit your post so it says "too." ;)

My advice to you. <--- Put a colon where there is a period.
Don't come round here now.

Funny stuff! :D

Cute little ditty, but not a poem. Better luck in future endeavours.

Interesting. I liked it, though I would advise to make it a smidgin longer, I didn't feel as if it had an end.

No worries. It was funny, it made me smile (the poem I mean).

And as for rhyming...I think you'll find a considerable number of people on this sight who will like it more because it DOESN'T rhyme.

One little thing:

Awful weather joins to.


"To" should be "too".

It could be a little longer. Maybe you could describe why you hate finals?

Gala and I have finals week every 3 weeks, so we don't have quite the same situation as you guys... ah, the mixed blessing of One-Course-At-A-Time.

A fitting poem for the time :)

It hasn't gotten quite that bad yet on my campus, but it soon will be. Finals begin on Monday, but that sense of anxiousness and apprehension has not yet permeated the air. By Saturday, I'm certain my campus will be dead as everyone retreats to suffocating cubicles in rooms caked with dust.
