The Swarthy Bard

Math, physics, English, and so on—
alas, are tiresome!
All the professors here go on
with a prime axiom.

A stuffy, college campus where
knowledge and books abound,
freshmen and co-eds are clueless
and confused all around.

Mid-terms and finals I do dread
as each semester ends;
the pressure's on me to study
as the semester wends.

School's oppressive this semester,
I'll see my old provost
and leave 'ere I rot and fester
to take up a new post.

William & Mary's M.B.A.'s
are just worthless BS;
degrees from the home of “The Tribe”
are crap that obsolesce.

I'll do rhymes as “The Swarthy Bard”
as poems are my forté—
not tomes or stuffy scholastics;
ballads are my métier!

I like the humor in it. I too prefer the Arts and find other disciplines very tiresome. :)

You are indeed a good poet and it seems to come easily for you. Some prefer the rigors of math and physics while others prefer the arts. Lovely!
