Why not be an Academic?

Why not be an Academic?
after Steve Urwin

The caterer’s choice
For crunchiness.

Just enough time
To snack
We jangle
Champagne flutes.

A good guide for life
Split down the middle
Of class,
Lying to the gods and
The gallery.

Run a course at uni
Make each half writer whole
The bare essentials
Of arts council, nepotism
And salary.

Pearls from swine fever
We patronise the word
Be an academic

Live this shit.
