The Psalm of the Trig Teacher

He is my teacher; I shall not pass.
He maketh me go to the board.
He compelleth me to solve difficult problems.
He maketh me to sit down for my class' sake.
Yea, though I study until midnight,
I gain no knowledge
For my formulas sorely bother me.
He giveth me an "F."
Surely identities and functions
Shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in this trig class forever.
