*This was written in the last 20 minutes of my AP Microeconomics exam, in the blank pages for the free response section. I hope it gives my scorer a laugh, and perhaps you too. Don’t take it too seriously.*

For years we labored with our books;

on you we cast our hateful looks.

Of bubble sheets we all complained,

for AP tests were such a pain.

But now that I have reached the end,

and here my path soon turns a bend,

the hills that lie ahead of me

seem bigger than they used to be.

Oh, College Board, we hated you,

as something to point fingers to.

But it is scarier by far

when I must reach my own high bar.
