I need to recite this poem in front of the class and i have to add at least three more lines to it. does anyone have any suggestions?
Math is the thick red book,
Sitting there, waiting for you to open it,
Just waiting for your sigh.
Math is working two times harder,
Then any other classes,
Just to get at least a B.
You stress over math,
Hurrying to get your grade up,
And get all the other homework done too.
Math is the hours and hours
Of homework each and every night,
Even though we know its just busy work.
Math stares at you, mocking you
As if it knows you will never understand it.
Math has the teachers, who just don’t care,
They sit there, voices monotone,
Our confused faces reflecting off their glasses.
I'd change all those "you" words to some form of "I" -- and then the "our" in the last line will make sense.
Line 5 should read "Than in any other classes,"
How about the last three lines about grades? Maybe you surprised yourself and got a good quiz or test grade? It would be good to end the poem on a personal positive.
