I'm entranced by the letter
Pulse all quick; Mouth all dry
But it's not a large packet
I am out; I know why

My prospects were impoverished
My motive was suspect
Never really tried that hard
My grades were imperfect

My friends will all know of this
"Guess he failed" they will talk
My parents might console me
Maybe I'll take a walk

I have to tell the truth soon
Though I hear my friend lied
My admission admission
I'll admit I'm denied
