The Graduate

You couldn’t see all of the danger.

You believed what they told you.

Mother,

father,

pastor,

brother,

even teachers taught you how to

avoid,

instead of assimilate.

 

Walked into a trap again.

One designed by minds to catch you.

Never even saw it coming.

Ignorance is in the flag you bear.

 

Even all the simple questions,

answers seem to elude you.

Honest as you are insipid,

as if you didn’t know

you’re going to die.

 

It’s interesting;

kind of like a thirty year long

fail video.

It’s gonna go wrong somewhere.

Bad to worse,

most likely.

 

Wish there was a way

to save you,

but you’re just

so

damn

educated.
