Stood For Presentations

There I was, drapes worn in ceremonial attire 
Today my brain is tired, my legs are too, 
Stood for presentations, my sweat glands empty 

Stress pours out of glands, to replace sweat
Like the fountain flow, Victoria falls  
Tic toc, tic toc, in a dual rush

Tic toc, tic toc, identical of time before go
While time shows its face, in numbers volley
Counting getting closer to my call on dot 

Dead line set on multiple stages
Like targets practice lined up to be shot 
One at a time, before the other, after another 

And I tell myself, sat at 3am
Elevating my metal know how
This is the last one

Masters is all I need
This really is the last one
I am too old for this school in academia


  1. Sheilagh Lee said: We can think we are too old for this school in academia but the turth is we are always learning trying to or not.
    Great poem.

  4. Kodjo, your presentation of the guard, the sweat glands emptying and stress replacing the sweat... quintessential student nightmare. Must be readying for a dissertation. Nice use of 3WW prompt, too! Here's mine:
    Hope you know your movie stars! Peace, Amy
