Test day

The classroom of judgement awaits at my school 
And I felt like a dumb little fool 
For I have not studied for the test  
That is waiting hungrily in its nest. 
 
I stepped out of the big shining bus 
That always brightens us 
But carries us to a place 
Full of worksheets that we have to face. 
 
As soon as I enter the arena,  
The teachers send out the monster hyena  
That tries to take our grades down 
And change our smile to frown 
 
Although I made it through, 
I can't get this fact out of my shoe 
The fact that I have to confront the test 
Still remains like a pest 
 
The time has come 
To finish what has to be done 
For me to face the beast 
That wants me as its feast 
 
This is the final judgement 
"swish swish" my pencil went 
Attacking the creature with stealth 
Continuously decreasing its health
