Creative WritingSaid the tutor to his student
Can you write a little verse,
There's a deadline coming shortly
I need money in my purse.
How eagerly all your colleagues are finishing their consignments
Hang tutorials, hang the feedback, hang any such refinements.
I find it very difficult,
His acolyte replied,
To write even a quatrain
That's got anything inside.
You may be pushed to produce for them / something down on paper,
But isn't this academic stuff a rather empty caper?
For heaven's sake stop chattering
Just scribble, scribble, scribble,
I promise not to read it
So I'll never know it's drivel.
The aim of our activity / is to produce something that's measurable,
You must be joking if you thought that learning would be pleasurable.
And further more, the tutor said,
I don't expect much thought.
Get through that module double quick
The way that you've been taught.
Keep at it, and on no account / must you pause to think at all -
In this kind of education there's no time to be original.
A little bit of this and that
Is all you can expect.
There's no time to study here -
Download it from the internet!
All you need is IT skills, an awareness of the cut-off date.
You won't remember anything , but you'll get a good Certificate.
