Graduation Poem: An alternative perspective

Graduation PoemIf you’ve landed on this page, dear reader, you might just be looking for a graduation poem.

I’ve written one for you, but perhaps not one you might expect.

Most graduation poems are a celebration of the moment, and there’s nothing wrong with that approach. It’s the culmination of years of hard work, after all.

However, in the modern age, it seems that many young people look back and wonder whether the burden of student debt was worth it, in terms of the potential return on the money and time invested.

You can decide on the merits or otherwise of that argument, of course, but I thought it might be interesting to offer an alternative perspective. One that might be considered more realistic, possibly?

Graduation Poem:

Graduation PoemI received a fine certificate

Wore gown and mortar board

Proud parents taking photographs

For memories, they will hoard

The Rector warmly greeted us

He spoke of futures bright

He said well all get well-paid jobs

Well, at least he said, some might

A degree once had real value

But it doesnt anymore

When everybodys got one

Employers know the score

Three years of diligent study

Now tinged with some regret

For two hours in the limelight

Was it worth incurring debt?
