I came to college, only to begin
My lifelong battle with carcinogens
First came the coffee to keep me awake,
And then the loneliness, my sleep to take.
And then the ulcers formed from all the stress,
Of getting it all done with great fineness.
Whilst lack of sleep and caffeine kill the brain,
A slow process – to make you feel insane.
And now I have an overwhelming debt.
That grows just like a tumor, and will not let you forget.
Memories of friends, and family last
Like heart-worms, and a heart-attack will pass.
While I am left at school where people learn,
The different ways to die, before they burn.
