On an average fine day in spring
he would not wake up and already sing,
sing or whistle a merry sweet tune, -
but keep solving equations till noon.

All day long he would write evaluations
and then optimize his own simulations,
would even skip lunch and dinner,
and risk getting thinner and thinner.

On an average spring day he wouldn’t sing,
But spend more time on MATLAB than Xing -
or any other tempting, alluring social app
or even his own sweet bed; what a trap!

He finds himself caught between
figures, numbers and caffeine,
even some books might be there,
papers and journals everywhere.

An average day, come sun or rain
he spends in shackles and chain,
locks himself up in a tiny room. -
That’s the PhD student’s doom.

In his mission he’s passionately lost,
alone at uni; only MATLAB his host.
Brooding and pondering; then revelation!
He solved it! Found the proper mitigation!

Now on an average fine day in spring
our story’s protagonist can finally sing,
sing or whistle a merry sweet tune, -
on his mind only sleep - coming soon!

Eventually all the pressure he can release
enjoy the sun and put his mind at ease,
reflect on tech, science and years of fun,
after hard work he got this thesis done.
