One must be careful when seeking advice
Not to seek it from the one who is bored
Or someone who's had the job a while,
And is burned out.
That was a mistake I made twice.
I really wanted to be a teacher.
I asked the teacher:
Would this make a good career?"
"No!" he grumbled. "The pay is poor."
I decided to be a counselor.
I asked the counselor:
"Would this make a good career?"
He said, "No! The pay is poor."
So I went to journalism school,
I learned great writing skills,
I learned I loved to write,
but I hated being a snoop.
So I quit and went to RT school.
I think fate drove me this way,
but I'd have made a good teacher,
and a good counselor too.
The moral: It is good to heed the advice of experts, and follow one's own heart.
