Vulgarity At Dawn

The day is fresh on this campus,
Exams fast approaching,
Mathematics fast learned,
By mathematicians still learning.
Theories and axioms fast crammed,
By philosophers still in the offing.
Anatomy quickly studied,
By medical professionals still on training.
Mimesis taken serious by actors still amateur,
Life, ethics and the society well observed,
By theatre trainees well serious.
'Those flaccid breast of hers,
Too weak to weaken my thirst'.
They aren't flaccid, quite turgid,
As turgid as that of a virgin', interjects another.
So begin some unwholesome polemics,
Vulgarity in words and defiling utterances,
From supposed sanctity sticklers.
Sexual innuendoes a watch word,
Lewd jokes to taint or attract,
another man's wife or sister.
Lascivious their attitude toward all women.
Ta ta tam, ta ta tam, ta ta tam,
Exams are set to be taken.
Books copied, papers hidden, notes torn, text books stolen.
A crash preparation for a 14 week program.
Into the hall they must all go,
And exams must be taken.
Peeping and girraffing from those,
Who the right choice made.
Soon they will be caught and out they must go.
Rustication may be their fate.
Just because they made a choice.
Some chose:
Reading and learning till dawn,
Others chose:
Vulgarizing at dawn!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
