Broke as a Joke!

Many expenses,
textbooks, tuition and food,
I'm working four jobs.

I'm broke as a joke,
Working harder everyday,
Earning my degree.

I may struggle now,
I will not struggle later,
A better future.

I like how this poem advocates college. I hate how some people just skip college to get a job with hopes that they can make more money in the long run by starting earlier, but getting a degree first gets people a better job that makes more in the long run. Great meaning behind this!
