Weird Way Of Thinking

Written by: DrJim Martin

 “The way I see it,” 
The youngster said, 
“There’s an easier way 
To be getting ahead.” 

“Why should study 
And continue in school 
When claiming entitlements 
Seems to be the rule?” 

“I don’t need to study 
Nor complete my degree, 
Society will willingly 
Take care of me.”

This mindset seems 
To be the norm of the day. 
Gone is the ethic 
Of a former way. 

And we still wonder why 
The world’s in a mess. 
Should we this ignorance 
So readily confess?
