College and Carcinogens (a song for the dismal)

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.
