What Don't You Get?

What don't you get?

I don't care about the dress code,

Nor the handbook.

What don't you understand?

There's more to life than 'no shoulders showing',

Or 'hats off in the building'.

What about the world?

What about the starving children,

The people without rights?

What don't you understand?

What don't you get?

Have you never heard 'there's more to life'?

When did life become rules and rules and rules?

Why don't we get to learn about politics?

About how to balance a check book?

Or maybe about how to stay organized?

Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines!

Teach me about that!

Teach me about how my boss will get mad if my works late!

Teach me how to balance my time!

What don't you get?

What don't you undersand?

That I have no clue about the real world!

Help me understand it!

Help me get it!
