I Packaged Their Assignments For Them - Poem by samuel nze

I packaged their assignments
Neatly arranged for them
I had committed intellectual fraud
And I was not going to care
Africa is not making it,
We're living double lives
Our intellectuals
Sport borrowed grades
Our students have empty brains
Those whose skulls are full
Are drained away abroad
And we are left here to stifle
One another in jealousy
When it is confirmed
That my head as well is full
I will allow myself to easily
Be drained away like my
Betters and compares, to the States
Or even to Europe.

    Short, sharp, and shocking. You might have lost your conscience over your deceitful actions, speaker, but at least you don't pretend that your actions are anything other than this. From what you say, I reckon this separates you from your fraudulently-inclined colleagues. (Report) Reply
