In longitudinal studies of students’ habits holistically
We have discovered some patterns consistent cross-institutionally
Though requisite credits and courses collected cull dilettantes marginally
A rather unfortunate portion accredited may not have intelligently
Considered material mentioned or introduced properly per each professor
Intrinsically certainly motivated even without exterior pressure
When post-stamina performance drastically plummets, repeated without cessation
As fatigue contagiously infects and afflicts the aggregate enrollee population
Where education once served as primary aims, for auspicious amelioration
What marginal gains to be had lost to games and inevitable fragmentation.
