This Way To My College


If you were not at my college,
this way to my college please

Maybe i better close one eye
and open the other so that i don't see
A group of female students queeing at a lecturer's office
to exchange their all for a simple pass

Maybe i better close that one
and open the other
so that i don't see the virus being passed on nonchalantly
like a joint of marijuana stub
in broad daylight
Maybe i better close them both
so that i don't see this countenance full of pulchritude falling victim to servitude,
So that i don't see them exchange biased assignments
from hostel A, BandC

Yeah i better close them both
so that i don't see myself expelled for exposing everything with my eyes closed
Maybe better open up now before bouncing
on a banner labelled REALITY
With the message 'NO THROUGH ROAD,
TRESSPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED'
Thank God i tresspass before opening up my eyes
I shall blame it all on blindness
And so should you if you can't see it
