Jeff Johnson John Kadarauch Our story begins with ice, And a man on a motorbike; He’s riding past this field of cold, docile cows Thinking what tune he should sing, And not what rock he might strike, And so when he does he flies through the air with a scream. Now he’s on the ground with just the echo of that scream And it’s cold and there’s nothing but ice All around. He looks at his bike. It’s totaled. He looks into the sad brown eyes of the cows And thinks “It’s a sad song I’ll sing.” Suddenly an idea strikes. He can see some buildings in the distance, and he strikes Out for the nearest. After 20 minutes or so he lets out a scream: “‘Bout damn time! I need a drink!” Through the pelting ice He can see a bar, and outside, a row of bikes. He looks back at the lonesome cows With relief. He can hear some poor drunken fool singing. It’s really horrible. The guy shouldn’t be allowed near a karaoke machine. He can’t sing.

    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.
