JAMB

 

She failed her JAMB exams

and lost her opportunity

to start University like the

other girls in her class.

 

 

She blamed everyone

including herself because

she didn’t pass but failed

her JAMB exams.

 

She had no choice

but to wait for another chance.

This will take another year

and hopefully she will pass.

 

She couldn’t wait

for a year to come

to birth the possibility of her

second chance.

 

She got pregnant in between

And at a minimum she needs

a year and six months more

to birth her dream of the second chance

If she agrees not to opt for abortion.

 

She is Sade the JAMBITE

blaming everyone including herself

because she didn’t pass

but failed her JAMB exams.

 

 

JAMB exams is the regular slang for the University/Tertiary Matriculation exams taken by high school students to gain access to a university in Nigeria.

JAMBITE is usually used for anyone taking the JAMB exams.
