Pratchett: My Filing System Just Like Unseen University - Poem by Margaret Alice

My personal filing system is
a very good imitation of that
of Mustrum Ridcully, based
on the same principles:

When I find notes I need, I file
them on the first available flat
surface – that is the floor, each
file left open on the right page

Makes my office difficult to
navigate, but I find all I need
eventually, and at home when
the books keep spilling from

My blue mosaic table onto
the floor, I simply shove them
under my bed, out of sight
but ready to be read

Whenever I’ve a notion to
whenever the dragon of
angst and uncertainty
threatens to swallow

My belief in the
goodness
of life!


Fun At Unseen University

Why I would love to visit
Unseen University

There is a Prehumous
Professor of Morbid
Bibliomancy

and a Posthumous
Professor of Morbid
Bibliomancy

who took Early Death
with only a given value
of dead

Archchancellor Mustrum
Ridcully practiced The
First Available Surface

Method of filing, more
than half the snooker
table served as his

filing system – this is
a world I would love
to experience!
