requisite twelve years to make it through school and graduate from his alma mater, and I took slightly longer, that doesn't make
me a loser. So what if I took 'the road less traveled by' and added a one-year, scenic detour to my journey--thanks to Algebra,
Physical Science, and well Latin. Did I mention Chemistry? Let's just say I liked Latin but Latin didn't much care for me. Just
because I took thirteen years in all to get out of Melancholy High with a diploma doesn't make me some loser. Being nothing at
all, now THAT would make me a loser

have a rat's chance of knowing what they are going to be. I do. I'm going to be a writer. Mr. J taught me more than English. He
taught me what Pops taught me before his passing...love.

50pts and brainlyest I MET a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert ... Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage [face] lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which still survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
Which of the following sentences best describes the dramatic irony in the poem?
The traveler knows he will see the statue in the desert.
