POEM: ‘TWAS THE FUTURE COLLEGE PARENT’S WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the houseCollege applications were stirring, waiting the click of a mouse;The essays were done, saved as word docs with care,In hopes that high SAT scores soon would be there;The 12th-graders were nestled all snug in their beds,While visions of acceptance letters danced in their heads;And Mom with shrinking checkbook and Dad with plunging market cap,Found it difficult to relax for a long winter's nap;
