the exam marker his tale

this sends out bucketsful of old cliché
and tells us nothing not already known
the whole mystique's quite completely blown
by page one's end and there's no more to say
but the dumb writer has been led astray
by the desire in their small heart soon sown
to make mysterious what we would bemoan
if a small child should bring to light of day
we ask you simply to tell the plain tale
not ring it with a bouquet of dead weeds
but you insist on wasting all that ink
on one more episode of epic fail
another listing of most boring deeds
with cheap cologne to hide the nasty stink
