Hindsight is 20/20
written by Teresa Dean Smeigh
copyright August 2015

Jack and Jill both quit school.
Neither thought they’d be a fool.

Jill became a mother soon after.
Jack hung himself from the rafter.

Jill was lost without Jack.
She never considered her lack.

Hindsight is 20/20 Jill soon found out.
She had no skills because she dropped out.

She went onto the Welfare role.
She never considered being on the dole.

Jill met John and soon they got married.
Had another child and found herself harried.

Going back to school became her dream.
She was finally getting an education it would seem.

Jill was lucky she met John.
Luckily he wasn’t an ex-con.

Another child was soon on the way.
Her education got put off for another day.

John soon left her for someone else.
3 children, no education and not much else.

Jill now learned that hindsight was dear.
She should’ve stayed in school that was clear.
