We’ve all acquired some worthless education.
A bit of this and a bit of that,
And with constant effort some imitation,
so can win that race against another rat.
But well read and conned by rot
will earn you a trade and ultimately to the cot;
one shall retire with nothing in hand
except the many regrets of heart; of unfinished travel to faraway land.
Reality maybe an illusion,
but let not the function be impaired or let it be bind;
that is, I speak of body and of mind,
and within these two, there never should be a collusion.
The purpose of human life is to relentlessly pursue a passion,
merely following the treaded path is so not in fashion.
