On Louise Getting Her Leaving Cert Results

If you do not add the water,
It will spoil the sponge cake mix,
If you don’t put in the mortar,
You will never seal the bricks.
Your car won’t go the distance
If you don’t put in the fuel,
And you’ll find increased resistance
From a very hungry mule.

Your Leaving Cert was brilliant,
For you put the effort in.
Hard-working and resilient,
You ensured that you would win.
You immersed yourself in study,
And you’ve reaped as you have sown,
And you now can leave the bloody
Mathematics well alone.
