In college I put this poem together to show a wonderfully gifted professor – pictured below at a recent event he invited me to – I was honest regarding a given weekly assignment. To further prove my point, I tied together all the editions of the magazine I brought to his class every week & put the pile on his desk.
To prove that I’ve always brought in a new TIME,
I decided to compose a short little rhyme.
I brought a weekly edition to each and every class
Because my intent was always to pass.
I wouldn’t be dishonest and take the risk
Of trying to cheat Professor Fisk.
My goal is to achieve the grade of an “A,”
So I do my best in Comm 310 on Monday.
I assure you I’d never tell a lie.
Is that proof enough? Okay. Good-bye!
