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

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
