Go into debt and you’ll be free

The graduate holds a receipt for false goods,
He wears a robe made of bills he cannot pay,
Because there are no jobs.

The rich leaders tell him he is
Unworthy of money,
Respect,
Dignity,
A home,
A happy life.
The rich leaders tell the student he is
Lazy,
Aloof,
Apathetic,
Selfish,
And a fool,
Because he is in debt.

The student stares at his receipt,
Ponders his debt,
His freedom is a lie.
