If I had my time again
"Knowledge forever" by Colin Lowley

In a university today, when adolescence then flies away!

You while away with time, in an educating rhyme

Listen and learn and your fruits will grow tall

A career not far away! In youth stand tall

Knowledge among men, will be a women's saving grace

Knowledge for women, will put a man in his place

University diverse, will teach the whole human race

It may even save our planet, from a young to adult face !

It's value is priceless, as the books pile high

Study and get muddy and reach for the sky!

Beyond your dreams, you will have knowledge in reams!

I hope you will be keen! And fulfill your dream!

For me it's too late, as my plate is nearly full

I educate from "google" and play the fool

Years of working hard, the written word fell away

University for me now, would be a "heavenly play"
