Fiscal Responsibility


Annually!
Thousands of scholars are presented degrees.
Dedicated to professions with expressed expertise.
And awarded they are in exciting ceremonies,
From various colleges and universities.

Millions of dollars are spent by these scholars,
To implement their knowledge obtain and effectively.
And hired they are by companies awaiting,
For their assistance to enhance...
The advancement of the economy.

But few, if any, are awarded degrees in 'fiscal responsibility'.
OR common sense it seems.
With dreams that reflect the health of an economy,
Kept as an objective.
And if this was true an overwhelming debt would not be accepted.

Annually!
Thousands of scholars are presented degrees.
Dedicated to professions with expressed expertise.
And awarded they are in exciting ceremonies,
From various colleges and universities.

But few, if any, with sights on greed to please,
Are awarded degrees in 'fiscal responsibility'.

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
