DON'T MAKE ME START EDITING

DON'T MAKE ME START EDITING

A Poem by kublakhan27

"
Waste no time
waiting for it to be hung

That monolithic
chestnut frame
housing the officiation
of the consummation
of a bachelor's degree
that hibernated
understated
in a trunk for eleven
years until the irony
of my position
was embraced just
tight enough
to elevate it to the floor
glorifying one corner
of the attic of
a big house
pimped up with enough
paint and furniture
to pass shruggingly
for an apartment

A more concrete
candidate for the wall's
interruption
is a letter from
the government
grudgingly officiating
the eradicating
of my student loan
in laconic honour
of my disability

The world needs
a bipolar-riding
former editor-in-chief
of campus arts
publications about
as much as
I require higher fees
for the filing of the
income tax returns that
bottom out
in the automatic
non-need for a number

I'm a special one
I get a word

nil

This was probably the most straight forward piece I have seen by you. It was emotional, but it also had some comic relief in there. Kind of like Shakespeare's trick where right after a really heavy scene he would put a comical character in to perk people up again. Personally I think your accomplishments are pretty great. Former editor-in-chief looks great on a resume. I am still in college trying to figure out what the hell to do with myself at 24 years (I was leaning towards nursing, but anatomy has me reconsidering), so be proud that you have you degree.

This one I understood. I'm getting better either at reading or picking what to read. But whichever, thank you for the poem.

Hey … you are not alone in the gotta a bachelors degree will dance for my dinner set. A gal's gotta work it but even the hustle doesn't seem to get one the floor these days. But wait it ain't over until they play Zeppelin. Help I can't stop speaking in metaphor. I hope that at least got a giggle.

Haha Mission accomplished my friend...thank you Pryde :)
I'm sorry Kublakhan27, I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this whirling view of your achievments. At first I laughed and then I became concerned and I laughed again. Not because it was funny, but because the way you presented it in a matter of fact kind of way was funny. I really enjoyed this today.

I have had the same struggles and am going to be returning to them come January. I love the pace of this piece, the rhythm and rhyme go together and paint a flawless picture of the frenetic life of applying for loans, hoping you get them, realizing that you might be in default on some of them. What a great write.

oh Steve... this one hits you straight in the heart then takes over your head... I could go on and on about this piece but will leave it short... I know could easily be a professional student if wasn't so dang expensive... I love learning... I know I am sad... but I am a nerd, what can I say... still not sure what those "degrees" really do, but maybe get your foot in the door, or get resume read... expensive piece of paper.. ((hugs))) this one was different from you... REAL, HONEST, and HEARTFELT...

I have a degree in Psychology and Religious Studies - and I became a teacher. I have a friend who has many skills - but no degree - and has been out of work for over a year. We do what seems right at the time, then go, whether by choice or necessity, in a direction never fathomed... and while life unfurls, we pay - in so many ways. The world needs more Poets like you, Steve - regardless of degrees or status...
