Physical Disenchantment of the Unnatual Kind
Adulthood a reality that everyone wants
But cannot accept fully once it occurs
Graduating college at the age of 22
Eager to grasp at the unattainable moon
Overly loose lasso and all
Only owing $20,000 to Sallie Mae
Another $15,000 to two different relatives
Waiting to see what they're investment will amount to
A job teaching at a top notch Ivy League school?
A book deal or a talk show to become famously fabulous?
Those endless hours of knowledge and books
About Plato and F. Scott Fitzgerald only conversation pieces
To get a decent paying job in the urban jungle
Masters Degree in Philosophy; only a paperweight
Closest occupation as cashier at Barnes and Noble
Weren't hiring at McDonald's and KFC thankfully
Forced to sideline dreams of superstardom and wealth in the daytime
Still fantasize about being a star with better everything
Pantene Pro-V type hair and off-the-rack everything
A new type of confident identity not afraid to jump off the proverbial cliff
No fear of falling face first into oblivion or getting laughed off life's stage
Fantasies of romance and adventure make sleeping hours more fun
Than the waking ones sometimes when time and snails go hand-in-hand
This 40 hour script needs a new storyline with a revived cast of characters
Living and working this dungeon making everyone too congested and depressed
Chips ahoy for everyone!
A good temporary reprieve; until the weekend arrives.
