There is the same unsuprising,

Invigilation

Invigilation is a slow game of Pacman. There are, however, no winners;

Just teachers entrenched in those aisle

Picking up dropped pencils and adjusting facedown student cards- bored out of their minds

Sometimes, you will find, that you left that perfect mood and perfect moment behind as you put it off for later.
