Classes all day
Study all night
Quizzes and projects and tests.

Watch the lamp burn,
As the oil dissolves
The flame is flickering fast.

The soul of my body,
The spirit inside,
Falters and fades and dies.

Education, degree,
Money, and job.
That's the price I've set on myself.

One I may gain,
The other I've lost.
And then does the first really matter?
