Exodus.
Tick tick tick tick,
the end is near, so close I can taste it.
My work is finished, I'm getting impatient.
More work to complete.

Gray skies, lousy climate.
Return to work.
Food time.
I don't think I'm learning much.
Wander about the campus.
First problems of the day.
Arrival.

The air is frostbitten, the ground is bitter.
Take a walk down to school.
Become alive
Remember where you are and what you have to do.
Open your eyes and pass out.
