A paragraph of satire equals $625 of script fees for a web series. Sorry. If you have a set up I might chip in some advice.

What the hell! Okay, you coulda Googled you know. I did on your behalf and found a gazillion examples in a few minutes.

Why Are The Homeless Unemployed?

Most homeless people spend their days hunting through trash cans and dumpsters for a piece of sustenance or at least something of value. If they're not doing that, they're begging for spare change on street corners. Eventually, one would think that they should be able to afford a couple of respectable suits or other outfits to wear while applying for a job. Keeping these articles of clothing clean would be difficult, but manageable. If you can't afford a coin operated laundromat (I'm sure there'd be plenty of left over change from begging), just find some large, clean puddle of water in the street to wash things in.

I think you should have waited until the homework deadline was passed.

That, then, was the mistake. Recognising it now might help you avoid it in future.
