The 6th finger……

Raise you thumb and someone you hail,

Raise the index finger and talk in detail,

.

Raise your middle one and it surely offends,

Raise your ring finger and bachelorhood ends,

.

Raise your little one and take nature’s call,

But there are some with a 6th one, a do-it-all!

.

When you raise this, you commit to a PhD,

And the 6th one stays till you get the degree,

.

A multi-use finger, this one turns out to be,

Does things for you, to many locks, it’s the key

.

It switches tabs when Professors walk by,

Updates Facebook status, oh-so-quick-and-sly,

.

Presses “Enter” and matrimonials it submits,

Google talks with all, SciFinder Scholar, it quits,

.

It clicks and to Coffee Board, it takes you,

Downloads latest software and movies to view,

.

It does more than all other 5 can do,

Call it a PhD finger, it’ll carry you through

.

This coveted 6th finger, needs a PhD to be,

So, PhD aspirants, use it well, a degree it’ll guarantee………
