Math Test


Normally a wake up call will do


Chance favors the mind prepared


A math quiz waits for an idiot in class


The university is an hour away by helicopter


Einstein begins his calculations over time


Over a bottle of morning whiskey in a cup


An hour late is an hour lost as he wakes up




Why not steal a car, a Plymouth with some gas


The student hits a guard rail at 90 mph going fast


Mountain cliffs are high. Canyon roads are hard


The brakes work fine but acceleration is more fun


How fast was he traveling to class when he went over




No longer will he have to answer stupid questions


Whatever was left inside that head fried to a crisp


A bolt of lightning strikes him dead before he lands


Or did he die while suspended in mid air


In suspended animation for that split second


Was it an act of God and nature or an accident


The one of being born an idiot


We must do the math before we go to class
