I’d rather not take you because once I do my worth will be judged according to you- “Does this kid deserve a life of joy, or should she slave away and sell coffee or toys?” (or perhaps drop out and marry a nice Jewish boy!)
I’d avoid you like the plague but wherever I go your book is there with a glare and I know that no matter how much I rave or rant without you there will be no scholarship or grant.
So I tolerate you in my life, but know, hated exam, that you fool no one, we all know you’re a scam!
