Doctor of Philosophy

there's nothing about it you don't like:
robes, microfilm,
fancy abbreviated wisdom.

if you're called doctor
less afraid are your pinings.

though I still smoke weed and watch tv
and call myself a poet.


  1. I think I remember this chorus from last year! :)

  2. haha yep. also i don't actually smoke weed... but i did when i wrote this!
