A Haiku on Grading

Exams crush my soul
I ponder my nothingness
wearied by wry words

Definition of a haiku: 1. a Japanese short poem consisting of 3 verses with a literary structure of a 5 syllable line + 7 syllable line +  5 syllable line (= 17 on); 2. a way for a frustrated teacher to lament the stack of papers and final exams that still need to be graded

I hope to start blogging again after I turn in my Spring semester grades. Stay tuned! 

PostScript edit: I changed the last line of the original haiku to make it cohere and end better.
