Student loans killing us all....
When I first got there,
they told me I was blossoming poetically
embodying my unidentified capacity
with overflowing energy
So I listened…
To the sounds that connected me to the next expectation so naturally
when actually it was all happening unintentionally
as a matter of fact
But I continued…
I took the credit they granted me,
gave talks on what it meant to me
and treated it like a gift so I graciously accepted the task to finish it with colours so bright the world might think good God, is that done beautifully
Or so they said…
When I was done, I smiled proudly
bowed with utmost cordiality
threw open the doors of my future enthusiastically
I owe the government a shit load of student loan, push me through classes and tell me I’ll grow, buy all the books and smile you know, you worked so hard, couldn’t be for nothing, no.
Now wear that cap proud and make us look good, see this parts important,
so listen, understood
Cause you’ll find a job, we promise, you’re good
And if you don’t you have 6 months.
You have to pay, or else, no choice, you’re responsible, we don’t have all day.
Make me rich, give it back, you no good,
making parents regret they they’d hoped for this,
no room for compassionate,
no time to fashion it,
good for nothing,
thrift shop shoes,
hair a mess,
Because I went to college…
There's more where that came from!
