An Ode

In no particular form, correct style, or heartfelt meaning, An Ode. To Job.

I was so excited to graduate college,
And set forth into the real world with knowledge,
But you've led me astray,
And I just have to say,
I'm just really not that fond of you.

There's nothing for me to do all day,
I think I'll start "working" from home, ok?
I'd be more productive,
There would be less deductive, (huh?)
And I would be much more fun too.

Do you know I've considered trucking?
And nannying, and waitressing, or just nothing?
The shack down the street,
Looks like paradise to me,
If I was able to quit and say suck it...hmm. Maybe not.

Ok, I take that back, it's not you...
Let's blame the economy, and "change" too.
I just want something demanding,
And difficult, and daring,
To prove my worth (and stop swearing).

Let's work on this, mmmkay?
In fact I think we should do happy hour today.
We can sort out our troubles,
Get over our fumbles,
And start all over, hooray!

  1. Oh, that's brilliant!

    Believe me, there are still some days I wish I could go back to the cocoon of higher learning.

    And I'm facing my 15-year college reunion.

  2. Eudea-Mamia: I'm trying to wait at least 2 years before considering going back to school. Only 1 and 1/2 years to go before consideration. sigh.

  3. Hmm, and what is it you're doing for a living??? I'm graduating this summer and I'm already there about the real world. I have no clue what it is I want to do with my life and I'm like um law school? So, I've been accepted but I'm afraid I'm going to HATE it lol. Enough of my rant, but I do totally understand you! LOVE the site by the way!!

  4. OMG! So, I just read the below post on English majors and you FRIGGIN rock! I'm an English major, and agree with everything you said! Now, I really want to know what it is you're doing! I've been thinking of going into PR, Editing/Publishing, or ...teaching high school english.
