Homework... What homework?!?

The clock strikes nine. Ink fills the night sky, until the silvery orb in the heavens is the only source of light. The clock strikes twelve. Tiny pinpricks of light dot the raven-dark heavens. They shine brightly; as if each was trying to outdo the last. I sit. And stare. And wonder. The clock strikes three. I shift and pick up my homework. The assignment is a three page essay, due today. Should I do it? Nah... I toss it aside and resume my staring of the sky.
