    Dear Children,
    I'm dying
    They're sucking me dry
    This I'm telling you
    In the event of my demise

    Dear Students,
    This is me that's talking
    I'm sick and you don't seem to care
    How my foundation is crumbling
    But we aren't even going to go there

    I sit in the shadows and observe as I die
    How I am ignored
    And because of this will come the event of my demise

    I used to be reveled
    I used to be happy and not cry
    I helped people who were thought reckless
    I thought I did...I tried

    So now as it is my turn, for you to come to my aid
    There is none but a few, other than that to rest I'm being laid

    Dear People,
    You still are oppressed
    You and I go hand in hand, we are synonymous
    One day when you realize how important I was and have become
    Will be the day to late, there's nothing left....I will be gone

    I can be either a lasting memory
    Or a dead and dying tale

    I brought you stress some days
    Others I brought you joy
    I brought you old time traditions

    I helped you get employed

    Dear Children,
    I write this as a scream for help one last time
    Because I, the HBCU am on the brink of demise.....

    ***Just some food for thought because in Georgia, it's getting bad....you've seen what's happened to MO B...don't let it happen again***
