The beautiful youth, imprisoned with his father, Daedalus. For fear of releasing the labyrinths secrets. Decided to make a daring escape. With the soft feathers of avian allies, And the melted wax of candles, He begins to construct wings. Finally, finished with his creations, he takes flight. Over the ocean, away from the prison they soar. “Do not fly to close to the sun.” Daedalus warns his son Icarus. But Kid Icarus, filled with Pride As if challenging Helios, he Takes to the sky, the clouds But does not heed his father’s warning. Falls to ocean with a crash. Never to be heard of again. The Emperor so sure of his intelligence Needs a new, grand wardrobe to accent it. No one in his land could weave a robe regal enough Until two young men entered the city. “You’re Excellence,” They swoon. “We are Masters of the loom. And can sew you the perfect outfit. It will be invisible to the stupid and incompetent.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
