It is a unanimous decision
Shirley is not at our faculty meeting.
We appoint her “in charge” of spirit day – Wednesday!
Watch out! Her teaching partner cautions us,
but she does not offer to do it.
Neither do the other twenty-six people there.
Thus, we are wearing go-go boots, miniskirts, and tassels
and anyone older than sixty has to do a handstand.
That is me.
Serves us all right.
