Let's Help the Brainiacs Become Rich Boys


United States

There's always a problem

when applying for college -

grabbing bits and coins

and whatever you can salvage.


Thank goodness there's money

for writing this poetry,

because if it wasn't there

poor boys would go nowhere.


If there was no money,

rich boys'd become brainiacs;

the poor ones sit at home

and slowly become maniacs.


Poor boys need college

to get them away from their toys;

with a pinch of poetry

let's help the brainiacs become rich boys.


So one-thousand dollars

less to pay for school

for a small and simple poem,

it sounds real cool.
