No, it's not me wot's leaving. This is for brother Jens.

(to the melody of "My man is gone now" from Porgy and Bess)

Our Jens is gone now
there's no use a-searchin'
for his wry one-liners
in da a-f-p.

Old Man Real Life
come to keep Jens comp'ny
taking up his late nights
instead of a-f-p.

Is it that we'll miss Jens?
Will we mark his absence?
Will the life just go on
in da a-f-p?
While Old Man Real Life
is holding Jens as captive
daily posting volumes
dive in a-f-p!

Old Man Real Life,
claiming one more poor soul.
Undoubted gain of high-school
is loss of a-f-p.

But read, and learn your stuff, Jens.
Pass examinations.
On the brink of June then
be back in a-f-p!
