A student's folk tale

Stacked with books, assiduity elsewhere
Exams knocking at hand
Yet the Friday get-go
And final cut buff. 

Night at sea and morning sloth
The evening prowl and buddy talkies
Escaped tuition and soul mate bask
Brainsick few moments
Ended with a break up.
Hearsays then bared
Eyes filled up and a hebdomad hush.

So called a fresh beginning 
They say it agone.
Acquaintances befalls
Yet the same story echoes.

Admittance time and outcome appraised 
Enough with bailiwicks, now the time to revel.
Late night parties and dearly-won snooze
Weekdays lessons and awaited weekend multiplex.

A secret dope and babbling out,
Desktop eroticas and tormented psyche 
Fags anarchic and creative smokes
Bohemian lifestyle
But forthcoming ruination.

A sudden consequence and fledged days
Thousand and one nights 
Of a student’s time of life.
