Sure, "Constraints"

 

I remember sitting in front of her in

Her boss' office, she was his resident,

And here we were, three years apart

In ages, in two completely different

Worlds of life, and she advising me

That there are all sorts of constraints

In life, and I shouldn't expect things

To be easy.  I looked at her with

Disbelief, 'cause seriously, how

Would she even know about it?

She's 24, a medical student doing

The residency part of her training

That her daddy paid for her...

I'm 21, battling the complications

Of so many traumas, in isolation,

And about to have a baby on my

Own 'cause the dad f'ed off...

As far as "constraints" go, I think

I had it pretty covered by then.

Some people live on another planet.

I don't really know what to say,
Should I say sorry to hear your pregnant.
Because your dipstick of a partner left,. Or
Wow some lucky baby has got you as a mom
Think I'll stick with the latter one.

There's nothing like a healthy serving of condescension.

I agree even though academics are not stupid, everybody knows how randomly are dispatched the capable students, the one who has a loan or not...
