The ‘A’ levels and after

The ‘A’ levels and after

By May Kwek

It’s over at last!
Pure relief
Ok I am two months late
But the last year you won’t believe

Studying everyday
Morning noon and night
Taking breaks only
To eat and sleep at night

And yet during those breaks
There was a dog barking in my ear
‘A’ levels! ‘A’ levels!
Like a shadow ever near

I couldn’t feel happy
When the last exam ended
Just relief that it was all over
Exactly as intended

Yet I still dream at night
That the ordeal isn’t over
That I missed an exam
But it ended in November!

Or that worse
I got my results back
And instead of As like I hoped
Are Cs edged in black!

Or even better
They start out as As
Then change to Bs and Cs before my eyes
That would be an awful day

So yes the ‘A’ levels are over
But I guess they haven’t completely left my mind
Fingers crossed I would dream no more
Till I know my results are fine!
