Dennis Weiser


Junior wanted money,
Judy wanted time,
so they saved their pennies
& they learned to rhyme.

I have a little money,
I have a little time.
I render unto Caesar
the fruits of Caesar’s crime.

So Junior got his M.B.A.
while Judy stuck to rhyme.
Now Judy's making money
while Junior’s doing time.

Dennis confesses: "This poem was inspired by my realization that the M.B.A. is undoubtedly the most worthless degree imaginable, possessing neither discipline nor knowledge bas​e​, but is merely a hodgepodge of marketing, Psychology 101, advertising techniques and pseudoscience.​"
