Hark dear fellow, man of great might!
Tell us about your courageous deep fight!
I will listen with poise, no worries here
As long as I have my jolly good beer!
Your journey of wisdom is what we need
Please feed us with this gentleman’s creed
We are of great stature, we love to learn
A very good lesson is what we yearn
Alas I will tell you this fortunate tale
This honorable duty I shall never fail
Every generation had a wise saying
It must stay fresh to stop it from fading
Listen carefully or take a good pen
I only come around every now and then
It’s a long story, please stay awake
Pay attention and don’t make a mistake
We all follow a righteous road
It’s part of a sacred specific code
It marks our place in our society
To avoid the misgivings of impropriety
We have ideas we’d love to share
It’s a risky venture so please be aware
We’re different in every single way
To bring about a distinctive display
We begin in the classroom, a sensible start
It is here we should learn to set things apart
A fine person has been chosen to lead
To show us the way on how to succeed
They have control, we don’t know why
It’s not them, it’s what they supply
We follow a strict and careful plan
It will now haunt us in this lifespan
We embark on a new journey after school
How can we remember that lord of misrule?
College takes up a similar mutation
What has become of our education?
Forced to pay every single dime
It’s an entitlement, it should be mine!
Forced again to take that seat
Watch us now as we begin to deplete
Our only solace is a coma
We wake up suddenly with our diploma
Deep in the red, the limits are drawn
It’s something so painful to bear down on
We do what we can to make ends meet
Enslaved to face reinforced concrete
We know of the values of sacrifice
Confronted with the terribly upsetting price
We must find work, it’s the name of the game
The obsession is strong to find true fame
The duties are clear by every word
To deviate from it would be totally absurd
We rise through the ranks and achieve respect
So we thought for many years of being correct
It has us now within its firm grips
Now we’re forced to read its scripts
A house among others, a typical sight
It’s the true meaning of our great plight
No time for fun, we’re always due
Everything we use will always accrue
Our strip of pleasure is terribly tainted
Here or there we’re always segregated
In some way we’re all connected
From head to toe deeply infected
The status quo is not their fault
It takes time for us to grind to a halt
Take a deep breath and stay clear of the fall
Think wisely once and for all
Every single choice has an outcome
Every tall hurdle we must overcome
Avoid the trap and think out loud
Stand tall and for once be proud!
Oh worthy guests sitting before me!
Did you get the lesson right down to a tee?
I hope it serves you well, that is true
It may take some time to let it sink through
Face them hard and just refuse
It’s far better than being a recluse
All it takes is a simple infraction
From deep within comes great satisfaction.
