A Courteous Reply To Billy Joel

I know you want me to sing you a song

‘Cause you’re feeling okey-dokey.

But I don’t sing. I’m the Piano Man.

Why don’t y’all go and sing Karaoke?

Econ 400, Minute 1

Via obfuscatory principles
And derivative pomp
It is my imperative to greet you
To my academic romp,

Wherein the equilibrium,
Elasticities, and curves
Shall give M. Night Shyamalan
Envy of my topical swerves.

I do hope to saturate you
In the ways of Bayes and Nash
While displaying free-market principles
By trading good grades for cash.

Please infer your syllabus,
Or you shan’t this lecture win.
Now, like a prisoner’s dilemma,
To start, we must begin…

He Chased Wild Geese

Did you hear the tale
Of the bulldog named Krupp?
If you have, crazy huh?
If not, look it up.

The Oregon Trail (Last post for a while)

I’m headin’ down South on the oregon trail,

So this poem is my last

For one long week, but cry not friends,

I’m sure it’ll go by fast.


I just hope we do not have

To ford a river crossing,

And that we don’t get dysentery

And can continue flossing.


And should our wagon wheel break

We’ll fix it by ourselves,

‘Cause trading with Indians is not politically correct,

And we can’t trade with elves.


And should we die along the way

We get to leave a tombstone

That tells others who come this way

That we did meet our doom-stone.


So farewell to those whose childhood

Was full of these Oregonian fails.

For those of you who don’t understand,

Here’s a link, and happy trails!
