How young people can get ahead

School work leads to thrilling careers
Say hooray hip hip--give three cheers!
A student's new skill
Brings success just until
The bill for the loan's in arrears!

    and to add to the pain, there is no job in sight!! My son has been interviewing for a lawyer position for two years now. He has a job as an assistant DA in a small town, but the salary is peanuts compared to what he needs to get out of debt. These are such hard times. I enjoyed this poem, Duke.
