On attending Colgate University – a mediocre poem

poetry

from a long line of mugs
came forth one who was willing
to create change.

out of a family of avid
crest users roger was nearly
excommunicated from his family
as he stepped foot on colgate campus

the people there were paste-y white
not a few with perfect dental
hygiene
the boathouse plaque yellow

a mugs who doesn’t like the dentist
a mugs with four crowns before 24
a mugs who still uses crest out
of family loyalty

i did not fit in at the
freshman dorms

crooked teeth and all

and the people
paste-y white.

  1. Hey, at least you got in. I’ve still got my Colgate rejection letter (it’s in a file along with rejections from Aquafresh State and Notre Dame).

  2. one time i tried to publish some poetry and just to be different I said “bitch, publish my poetry”

    he responded something along the lines of calling me a poophead, and then saying “no”

    but it was a colorful rejection letter.
