A Professor’s Life

Sir Ken Robinson has rightly said
A learned professor’s body
Is mere dumb locomotion for his head
(Which makes him quite an oddity)

Some professors view life or fun
As grist for their intellectual mill
Materials to get another thesis done
(You’d think they’d have their fill)

When I move to that ivory tower
Years later than my fellows
I’ll bring love and life into my bower
To make the ascetic academic light mellow

For if I leave less written words for strangers after my depart
At least I shall have left more laughter and joy in friend’s hearts
