Being Broke Is No Joke
Is No joke,
It much more like find a job,
Without a diploma,
People won't hire you,
They really don't want to.
Now, if this is cruel,
Look at this,
Who trained you for such bliss.
Is it education's fault,
You didn't learn,
You didn't pay attention,
You didn't go to class.
In our society,
It is polite,
To blame somebody for out plight,
Now before you look to whom to blame,
Why not imagine this,
How about all ot the others who have been a success,
How did they get ahead of the rest?
Do you think that they maay have paaid attention,
Instead of worry about hoe to serve their detention?
Now, as life goes you need to know,
As a rule it is not where you start that counts,
But it is where ffinish that does,
Some are finished much sooner than others,
The are finished before the others are done!
