Hard guy, Hard guy,

‘I won’t come for posting’    
‘How can I? A whole me,
I go stab,’
   
But you are here today,    
why?    
the power of an EOP.


Hard guy gone soft,

no notes, no jottings,
just one small 2A exercise book,
but then you are begging those front seating ladies for their notes,
for photocopy,
Please na, your note, the power of an EOP


Shebi na one mark be this EOP’,
‘Guy na small thing, ‘

But you are not sleeping!
You been on Agbara for the past three days!
Your neurons are weeping
some of them are now misfiring
the power of an EOP


Bro bro,
na 12 weeks be this posting o,
‘Make we flex’
9 weeks MIA, then suddenly,
in a flash, with lightening speed,
the power of the EOP rouses you from your death,
Omo this thing na die o,
and as medical students always say,
I neva jack shingbain!


Sister sister,
No make up on fleek today o..
Omo mehn.. the EOP is truly powerful…
We lost our beautiful sister,
now we are left with the one without Autotune!
But, you STILL SMELL NICE sha


The romantic phonecalls
have been suspended for now,
replaced with group readings,
group discussions and occasional group lamentations…
O ti su mi!! (I am tired!)
How we go jack this thing na?
and for the more exegetic ones among us:

How would I judiciously maximize the time frame allotted to ensure optimal brain performance and/or functioning for the upcoming examinations?

As one of my coursemates would say.. YOU ARE O.K!!


All my friends are no more ballers,
they are now all jackers,
so they do not end up like the gunners…. err. (Yes.. I mean Arsenal!)


But still,

there are some EOP masters,
who have mastered the power of the EOP.
They are not from here
and they might not have the time to even read this,

EOP o, no EOP, they are forever JACKmen, diligently burning the midnight candle, the midnight NEPA, phone torch and generator combined. They are not hardguys or supergirls, they are ‘booked up’:


Notes………………………………………………………………………. ✔
Jottings plus lecturers’ jokes, coughs, and gesticulations…..✔
front seat…………………………………………………………………. ✔
three to six textbooks per course …………………………………. ✔
EOP ………………………………………………………………….✔✔✔✔

Please if you know them, help me send my regards to them!


Finally,

Whichever category you belong to,
do not forget
to put in your best,
it is but for a season,
because as we always say:

we go dey alright las las!

Shout out to all medics, we are finishing well and strong!


P.S: ‘Jack: Read, so Jackers: Readers
;
shingbain: nothing
Agbara: Coffee + Coke
Autotune: An app used to finetune voices in recording

SMELL NICE: Please Just google ‘smell nice interview’

Comments are welcome!

Your articulation prowess is highly commendable, your imaginative instinct is out of this world, and conceptual finnesse and ability are covetable.

May your wisdom never deteriorate, and your castle of knowledge keep glowing in her powers!
