COLLEGE


       Emptying my bent spare-change cup, in good faith I signed up

       Toward the embellishment of my poetry's plain pen erudition

       Just my luck it turned out, the class aspired to be more about

       The various and sundry improvement of non-fiction's fiction

       And though I fancied a good time of polishing up my simple rhyme

       I was compelled to compose instead recondite boredom of historical line

       So, to make the best of a most dire and unfortunate situation

       I set my heart to broaden the thin scope of my piece-meal education

       By developing toward doctoral professorship of ivory-tower predilection

       Of twisting all that be true into a perverse Babylon of total fiction
