Then the fat boy took off running

A Nigerian, studying for years,
In higher institution,
Burning candles.

Graduated with honors, got no job,
Searching daily,
Fed up.

Tears rolling down, he is pained,
Remember him,
This I plead.

the final bell
my last day

we move on
we separate
we grow
we leave
we graduate
its over
I can't believe its over...
