Poem

Jack Brummet is posting poetry at his blog.



For instance, this one.



I wrote a poem in college. I've been searching for the original but I can't find it.



The poem went something like this:



The Ivory Tower



It glistens from afar

Shiny and inviting



But

  Up

    Close



You can see it’s

    c r u m b l i n g

And peopled by ants.







For some reason the professors I worked with didn't like it.
