.

Mix two years of trade school

with a year apprenticeship 

then toss in job search of six

months and that's how.

.

Old skilled farts are retiring 

and lots of slots are opening

in a town near you.

Youngblooof, sign on the line,

chain gang dotted ready

for the innocence of

the unknowing optimist.

Step up, byob or use

our bat, the home plate

is this way, please follow 

me or the one with the

payroll and grow old

knowing that

is how.
