Higher Education

Where's the inspiration
for higher education?
Sweat and strain
to use your brain
just for the vain
hope.
Get yourself a title.
Don't get suicidal!
It won't be idle
glory.

Where's the inspiration
for higher education?
Is it the seduction
of critical production,
the pleasure of the text?
The erotics of erudition
is feeling the text,
having the text feel you.
There's the stimulation
for higher education.
