My Incredible Bunk Mate
"Can the Ethiopian change
His skin, or the leopard
His spots" Jeremiah 13:23a
Jenny was such an incredible bunk mate.
Hardly did she attend lectures.
A night crawler,
A chain smoker,
A drug addict,
A lazy bone.
She drinks to stupor and gives me
Sleepless nights with her snores.
Thought I could help her out
Till she dragged me in the mud.
No sooner, we became birds of a feather.
Gradually, I began to skip lectures.
After all, I could read on my own,
So, I thought.
"Pass through school
And let school pass through you"
Those were Jenny's words.
Never knew there's a payback time.
I became a party freak,
I never miss any celebs show on campus.
I failed my exams woefully;
My GP dropped.
My Dad became worried,
But, there's more than meet the eye
Under the influence of drug and alcohol.
My set graduated,
I was rusticated.
My father wept profusely when he heard the News.
I became a nuisance,
