got a PHD
from the universityl of
hard knocks
the sheep skin framed
and hanging on my wall
reminding me of
my accomplishments
graduating with honors
top of my class
no one could touch me
studied hard for that
as I move the tassel
from the left to right
shaking hands with
those that taught me
on graduation night

    School of hard knocks is a terrible way to learn but is effective. Keep writing. Sara
