The Exam -May 05,2012
The urge is to die and not withstandbeing
The conspiracy is to demise our
But I will not let it swallow me and
I watch as the hands on the clock
Form a repeating angle and I stare
The reason is to try until ad nauseaum
I cant take it anymore!
No longer will I accept an onslaught on
I'll get up. Go and never stop to care
Or listen who explains or who got it right
I rise to leave and as if by force
Am subjected to sit and continue a cruelty
To myself. I saw the year; wasted listening
to what I call stupidity.I shall sit and
time run off the clock then leave this
dreaded room and pray for the marker.
