For I failed, perhaps, college,
Being here instead of med or law.
Thus, we are going to laugh at poems
You, with me, belonging to each other
No longer to words - starting tomorrow -
An epidemic of envy
For the multitudes within
- performing statistical analyses.

Grad - gradus - stone
School - schola - leisure
Let's us not forget
Ascending in the dingy air
Into the high noon
There're transcendent shadows
Shaw's Christians in heaven
Contemplating perpetuus -
Omnibus Om.

The conscious shape reality.

"An epidemic of envy"
wonderful way of putting that, and the way this epidemic manifests itself is well observed... afforded me a wry smile, did this, as I found myself reflecting on the poet's lot. seems we spend a lot of our time projecting, forward in to far off futures, lives we will never possess, but we belong, most completely to the past…

thought provoking piece… well put this, good to read you again.

Quite enjoyed this. Took it as the lot of we Humanities folk in general, though I'd say in the envy we project we miss the envy we receive. Hmm. Sometimes.
