A Senior am I

A senior am I
So pour me a drink.
A senior am I
Right on the brink
Of life and career
And a future so bright.
But I am a senior
With no job in sight.
So gather your contacts
And send them my way.
A senior am I
Dreading this May.

A senior am I
The world at my feet
A senior am I
Ready to meet
What future awaits
And what it will give.
But I am senior
With nowhere to live.
So open your home,
I promise I'm neat.
A senior am I
Who'll live on the street.

A senior am I
A ruler of men.
A senior am I
But let us pretend
That a senior I'm not
But rather a child
For I am a senior
Lost in the wild.
Don't make me grow up
Like all of you did.
A senior am I
Trapped in a kid.

A senior am I
So kind and so smart
A senior am I
Painted like art
with brilliance and wit;
my mind like a king.
But I am a senior
That knows not a thing.
Forgive me, my friends,
I've come to believe
That a senior am I
Not ready to leave
