On words of academe
There walk the full-time men,
Their long white coats like togas,
Their stethoscopes bedecked
Around their necks like garlands,
In stately groups these come and go
To speak of cells and pressure-flow,
And as their bedside musings wane
Retreat to regions more mundane,
To talk of tenure during lunch
Perusing abstracts as they munch.
Then with their minds and bellies full
They sit on boards pontifical,
Connive for grants of larger sum
And modify curriculum.
