Good and Bad

The good do their own term papers,
The bad steal their papers, and look dumbfounded when
asked about their thesis.
Yes, The Thesis of your paper -how did you arrive at that?
What's that, after all that time writing and revising?
Can't tell us, what again were your main points in support of your thesis?
Really now? that's not what you wrote here
Who helped you with your paper? What exactly does a grade mean these days? All depends.
Grades, Knowledge, what passes for effort. In the end,
on your deathbed are you going to say - I really should have been one of the good -and written it myself that day
