Coverups, Excuses Made And Deceit - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Coverups, excuses made and deceit.
If I am not mistaken,
We all were told...
The curriculum would be changing,
To research, investigations...
And discovered revelations.

'We too thought we could offer,
Something more relevant...
To the times unfolding before us.
Those responsible for making those changes,
Can not seem to agree...
Upon the degree of honesty,
We would like to approach the findings...
Of what has been uncovered.
Until that happens,
We have committed ourselves...
To teaching what is known and reliable.'

Where is the truth?
And how is that applied?

'That depends on the bursar's office.
And your financial standing.
You will become more familiar with this,
When you become an alumni of this institution.'
