School Spirit


I teach a college course on ghosts.
A graduate student, I am,
Not given to a lot of boasts,
But students flock to my program.
And they don't seem to mind at all
That I am not a full prof yet.
They fill the largest class room hall,
Competing to be teacher's pet.
Though an election course, there is
A long waiting list to enroll.
Teaching about ghosts is good biz,
To help a high enrollment goal.

While getting my own PHD,
I teach about ghosts - about me.

    I taught a college course on sex,
    Which did little more then perplex
    But oh it swamped the Registrar,
    Over night a campus star!

    I launched the course with Sigmund Freud,
    Little Hans, the boy,
    I spoke of his fragile toy
    I lectured from the text;

    At the conclusion of each lecture course,
    I was surrounded by coeds,
    Who offered glad to tutor me,
    By taking me to bed.

    They assured me that it wasn't fragile
    Inclined it hard at every angle;
    How refreshing is the search for truth
    Oh the ardor our college youth! (Report) Reply

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?
