As I lay in bed to rest
A feeling crept into my breast
A tightening, a panic, fear
Is my deadline really so near?
A presence lurking near my bed
The due-date looming overhead
A tenseness thickening the air
The thesis monster's empty stare
Before the panic gripped me tight
I sprang out of my bed that night
And rather than work on the project due
I drew instead, this picture for you.
