The caffeine-induced midnight trance is a sacred part of the revising ritual.

I do not love thee, Chapter One
You plod and drag, you're not much fun
But here I'm stuck until you're done -
I do not love thee, Chapter One.

I do not love thee, Chapter Two
I doubt if half your claims are true
Or that I ever proofread you
I do not love thee, Chapter Two.

I do not love thee, Chapter Three
Despite old claims to the contrary
For I knew bugger all in 2003
And I do not love thee, Chapter Three.

I do not love thee, Chapter Four
And can't think what I ever saw
In writing like a book report
I do not love thee, Chapter Four.

I do not love thee, Chapter Five
I'm wishing I had changed my mind
About the whole damn enterprise
And especially you, dear Chapter Five.

(Normal blogging will resume shortly. I just need to rewrite the entire thesis from scratch, and then I'll be right with you.)

  2. Brilliant poem!! Good luck -- the thesis writing always has its ups and its downs, I hope things are looking cheerier for you soon.
