Ivory Tower Trash


(inspired by the wonderful karmadog)

Ivory tower trash -
Someone throw them a sash
Or a badge to wear,
As if we'd care.
I hope it gives them a rash.

Stuck in their tiny corner
Like a myopic Jack Horner
Assembling some facts
About disjointed Yaks
For a paper that would chill a coroner.

I give them this, they're persistent
And deserve a whipped assistant,
Who'll finish the work
For the egoist jerk
Whose whim makes them subsistant.

Meaningful is not the intent -
For this, their schools should get bent,
But publish they must
Or the coffers will rust
And the Alumni would be less content.

For me, degrees all invoke
A desire to lay back and choke,
But the dollars are there
With endowments to spare -
A self-perpetuating scholarly joke!
