Rat Race by Hannah Allen

Attend class,

Sit, stay, listen,

Pay attention to the lecturer,

Get good grades good student,

Choose a passion,

Reliable occupation.


Become a good employee,

Serve your employer with glee,

He’ll offer you security,




Collect more dust and things,

Work harder,

Get a promotion,

Receive a bigger paycheck

To pay more taxes,

Invest in liabilities,

Be a member of the rat race,

I hope you have insurance,

Learn absolutely nothing

About how money really works,

Keep chasing paper.

About the Author

I grew up in a small town in Florida where I currently live. A pretty normal 90’s childhood. The youngest of three. A proud Aunt. A current college graduate figuring it all out. I’ve always enjoyed writing and songwriting. A big fan of 60’s Rock ‘n’ Roll helped guide me towards my love for poetry. I look forward to the many adventures ahead.
