Good God! I never dreamed you'd graduate!
Remember when we both flunked chemistry,
And got by math and bio with a D,
Drunk the night we planned to study late?
Unless I've got it wrong, you then dropped out,
And took off a semester -- or was it two? --
To work full time. I lost sight of you,
Intending to call, but too screwed up, no doubt.
Our competence is wholly in our care.
Now I'm still here, and you? Well, you're up there!
