The Value of Human Currency on Graduation Day

By: The Vampire Sweets


Widely tested theories
Sentimental ceremonies
Academic overload
A price tag on a Future
A padlock on success
The elemental contact
The furious unfair compromise
The blatant immortality
Things you see
With educated eyes.
All drawn up so beautifully
To hang upon a wall
Nothing to be proud of
Though hundreds
or thousands trust and applaud.
