say what? (Mark 8:27-38)

 at the end,
          just before the bell
     i bring my blue books
        (filled with
   observations from my favorite
   answers [copied almost word-for-word]
       from the 2 volumes
              Calvin wrote;
   quotations from all the
          you gave over the length
          of the course [just to prove
                i was paying attention,
                though my eyes appeared
   minutes from all the judicatory
            meetings and committees
               i attended;
   copies of all the sermons
      where i managed to turn the
                           good news
          into gobbledygook)

up to your desk,
where you set them on top
              of all the others,
   and taking a match
   you set them all on fire,
       you tap me on the
            chest, asking,

'what's in here?'
