Oh the pills you will fill, on your pharmacy stool
After completing 7 years at your pharmacy school
It may take even longer, it could take a whopping 8 years!
And you may graduate someday in debt, right up to your ears.
It may feel as bleak as a father seated in 3rd class on the Titanic
As you plod through courses like Pharmaco-Dynamics and one called organic
You will learn all these rules and regs and recognize a pharmacy flaw
And learn how to avoid losing your license by studying pharmacy law
You soon will recognize friends who are already out working a trade or vocation,
And just when you think you have made it, it’s now time for Rotation!
Week after week of “on-the-job” training, as far as the eye can see
It seems a big scam, as you now still pay tuition, just to work for free!
Yet you bravely brandish a mortar and pestle as your pharmacy swords
And next, somehow, someway, you passed your pharmacy boards.
You are so excited as your family and neighbors are dancing with glee
as you show off that framed expensive piece of paper that shows your pharmacy degree
You think you have connections, you think you’d get an invite to meet the President
But today to get a job, now it’s off to become a pharmacy resident.
You think wow, more school- will this ever come to an end?
You may start to question things when you see your just employed physician non-Pharmacy friend.
You wanted something more and you wanted an adventure and thrills
And here you are, years later, now back stuck counting pills.
You had to find a job at retail, but it sure beats mopping pharmacy floors
Until a month goes by and they have just closed your pharmacy’s doors
You feel now like you were run right over in life by the Pharmacy truck
Pharmacy life isn’t fun when it seems you’re now officially stuck
Yes, you could count pills on a train and you could count them with a Fox
But when it comes to pharmacy, life begins when you can think outside the box.
You might not have the coolest job and you might not start a trend pushing pharmacy fashion
But you don’t have to quit- just GO and LOOK and you’ll soon discover a pharmacy passion!
I can tell you the truth, it can Happen to you, as it happened to me.
