The Lament of a Distracted Scholar

Papa said, Son, you've got to face your book'
But here I am lavishing my time on Facebook.
Damsels here and there, I poked and chatted up,
Ignorant of the fill-up of my own cup.

'We can meet up for some great fun tonight, innit?'
My words to her alone, unknown that she was a spirit.
I had a future untill I met this Jezebelous witch,
Today here I am stuck as a bitch.

Had I known, I'd have faced my book,
Ought I even to frequent Facebook?
'Never say never', says a man proximate to my path,
Lord knows, I shall now on be cleansed and have a deep bath.
