the reason I am here

you must wonder why I'm here

to get some money to study with peers

to avoid the parties and the beers

is the reason i am here


I must be honest i need some cash

because my classes I need to pass

I'll drop a reference here or there 

or just spread them everywhere


I'll step into the parlour 

to show you Howitt is done

thes poem will have a silver sheen

as I come out of my shel

if I spin these words into a twain 

I'm sure to make my mark

as of now I am a Poe boy

looking for some dough

if I can ge this scholarship

I'll be one nevermore


If you are not convinced by now

I'm not sure what to do

I'll just sit back and watch

while you sit and choose

My first name isn't Johnny

But I really need the cash 

so please throw me a bone here

do not let me crash...into financial trouble

My country
