‘Twas the week before finals, and all throughout Tech
Pencils were scratching as students got wrecked.
Despite Kantwon’s powers, CS was a pain.
Circuits signaled death; students’ tears fell like rain.
“O-chem or o-no?” was Chem-E’s tortured cry.
“Bio-transport me to hell!” An F will not fly!
ID’s rot in studio and bio majors are death.
“C’s get degrees,” you whisper under your breath.
With a last-minute calculation, your fate becomes clear:
You need a 278 to pass - a true helluva engineer.
Alas, all this stress… will it be worth in the end?
As Psych majors like to say, “It all depends.”
Your GPA is a number that tends to ignore
Your will and work ethic - and whether or not you’re a bore
So if you’re somewhat exciting and not a stick in the mud,
It’s okay if you fail! You’re not a total dud!
Tech tests your will to learn and move past
Your hard times, your failures - these lessons will last.
These lessons of diligence and perseverance past fear:
They're what make you. You're a helluva engineer.
You're more than your GPA. Study hard, and best of luck on finals everyone!
