'Tis said the way to get ahead
Is to get on the fast track.
Full steam ahead is what they used
To say when I was growing up way back.
Now is a fast track like the ponies race?
Or is it when the mommies chase to
Catch their progeny down the garden path,
Shouting. "Just you wait 'til I catch you!?"
Oh, no! The term simply indicates
That young persons cannot wait
To take a whirl
And make their mark in the business world.
Have you ever taken the fast track
and where did it lead?
Happiness -success-a great life?
Or were you just happy to stop and sit back?
