Work hard my son,
Your future lies in education,
It depends on your determination,
Those were the words of my mother.
I woke up early daily,
I really studied hard daily,
Mastering abstract concepts daily,
What could have you done to succeed?
I labored for seventeen years,
Nothing achieved in those years,
Theoretical education dominated the years,
Those precious years were wasted like that.
Job market presented sad reality,
Success depended on your practicality,
I didn’t have the practicality,
How many have ever failed to deliver?
Employers looked at your papers,
They never minded about skills,
Organizations ended up recruiting failures,
The entire education system required total change.
