Poetry War–college education indignation
…So then, if you insist…
let’s travel from the world of make believe
and into the world of debt slavery.
Let me tell you what a college degree did for me! My first
fool full-time job after receiving a B.S. (aptly named) was RECEPTIONIST! My boss had a high school education.
Here’s an eyeopener for you:
Debt vs. get-a-job.
$40,000 average debt for bachelor’s degree.
$100,000 average debt for graduate degree.
$45,000 average salary after college graduation.
$40,000 average salary for a plumber.
$50,000 average salary for an electrician.
$10,000 average debt for vocational school.
ARE YOU GETTING THE MESSAGE YET?
You have experience! That trumps high school!
From Bank of America to Mrs. Fields and Wendy’s,
they’re multi-millionaires today
with barely a diploma nay
the chains of loan enslavement.
They’re unencumbered with a debt
the size of a house payment.
You are an equestrian, with real estate experience
in Canada, I know that well
with skill and courage–I can tell
a college grad you may not be,
but you have quite a history!
You’re a radio announcer, a bookkeeper and writer
I also know, through watching you
that you are quite a fighter!
There’s 2 things excellent you do,
Articulate and sell, sell, sell,
so find your niche! You’ll do it well.
