Twas the night before the test
Sophie thought she’d get some rest.
Till her sister started humming up a tune.
And it wouldn’t ever end; it went on and on, my friend.
Till Sophie thought she wouldn’t sleep until the June!
She glanced up to check the time
As her fear began to climb
And the SBA loomed nearer hour by hour.
Anneli’s song went on and on; about penguins, parks, and ponds,
And how lemons, limes, and pomegranates became sour.
At last the clock struck ten.
But the song? NOPE! Not the end.
Until a rattle came right from the door.
In stepped Sophie’s pop, with tortillas from the shop.
“Tacos, Anneli?” he said, “Two, Three, or Four?”
With a taco in each hand
And three more fresh in the pan,
Anneli’s brilliant song began to fade.
And the words from her sweet lips were replaced by creamy drips
So Sophie’s head was once more on the pillow laid.
And with lots and lots of rest
This kid who does her best
Did an amazing awesome job on this here test!! Love, Mom
