lyrics

I took my son on a walk last week, I ask him about his dreams. “What you want, what will you be when you grow up?” Here’s what he said back to me:
I want to be a technical writer of clear and simple prose, I want to write directions and manuals, and create nothing of my own.
I want to be a technical writer, I don’t want creative control, I want to bury my BA in English in a lonely, comfortable hole.
