We don’t need no (doomprophet economists)
We don’t need no doomprophet economists a past colleague declares (I mangle his viewpoint and maybe hyphenate him a bit)
the bourgeois-minded (folks in the know) do the perennial navel-gaze and the like over our matriculation results
the usual refrain says he perpetual pontification and admonishment they instill a negative mindset rather than sending positive vibrations
by the massed hordes
at their security gates
darkening their doorsteps waiting in vain)
We don’t need no
who clearly don’t see
the toiling hardship and sacrifice of parents out there
We don’t need no thought control
no dark sarcasm in the media.
Leave the kids alone
hey doom-prophet economists.
Leave us kids alone
(All in all you’re just bricks in the capitalist wall).
So matriculants, bask in the success of your long years of toil
despite the system
Colleague-past Rodney Zeeberg’s social media dedication brings forth this one, with a little help from Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”, in essence their Another Brick in the Wall.
