Lehrman American Studies Center vets may wish to sup on the words F. Scott put into the pen of Amory Blaine, Princeton '17, and appearing in a student rag called "Nassau Lit." I think he would bid us do better than this professor:
Good Morning, Fool...
Three times a week
You hold us helpless while you speak,
Teasing our thirsty souls with the
Sleek 'yeas' of your philosophy....
Well, here we are, your hundred sheep,
Tune up, play on, pour forth...we sleep.
You'd sniffed through an era's must,
Filling your nostrils up with dust,
And then, arising from your knees,
Published, in one gigantic sneeze.
