Nontraditional Student

Itís never too late to improve your mind,
And you income can increase.

There are kids to put through college;
You can delegate duties with ease.

A car pool is the perfect answer,
Though class schedules may not coincide.

Well, study that time; itíll work out.

Itís worth it to save on the ride.

Though the home crew may tire a bit later
Plan to be with them all that you can.

So youíre studying at their game and their concert,
It will help to accomplish the plan,
The classes are finished; weíve done it.

Face the job hunt with anticipation.

Itís the happy day for which we waited.

I call it exhaustion; they say graduation.
