My ACT Scores!I'm so happy right now, going into 7th grade I took the ACT and I got a composite score of 17, which was good, but I didn't benchmark in anything, so I took it again last month.More Like This
I'm happy to say that my scores have improved and I love my new scores. xD
I'm mainly posting this as a reminder so I don't forget my scores later, and as a pick-me-up for myself.
Composite score- 23
The Logical ParadoxOne bright day, in the middle of the night,More Like This
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back, they faced each other,
Then they drew out their swords and shot each other.
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
So he came and shot those two dead boys.
If you don't believe this lie is true,
Just ask the blind man; he saw it, too.
Rhyming CoupletsCouplets flap on broken wingsMore Like This
Uncouth, ungainly, gangly things
A rhyming form that limps along
And almost always comes out wrong
For comic verse it's good enough
For epic verse it's rather rough
A tragic couplet sometimes fits
Dramatic couplets work in bits
A short line
Can work fine
But writing staccato
Only goes so far to
Disguise the rank simplicity
Of the rhymes in the vicinity
It works in comic opera very well
But in dramatic works it jars like hell
The couplet form, in truth, is a menace to our craft
Insist on using couplets and your poetry sounds daft
They're workable in contexts where they'd usually be found
And there are clever bastards who can even make them sound
Appropriate in place where you'd never think to find 'em
But by and large the couplets hide a weaker will behind 'em
There're ways and means to use 'em, but I think you must concede
That it's better to avoid 'em if you've no especial need
To allow couplets admittance to your own scholastic sanctum
For the gents and
