I was quite inspired and thrilled at the news in the Herald that "tree sitting" has supplanted goldfish consumption as a prize stunt at Harvard University. So here's to better and greater "tree sitters."
Dear Mr. Harvard Prexy
Why can't you do something for me?
I haint got the education
It takes to sit up in a tree.
I know Harvard is very Exclusive.
Its frats are hard to crash.
But tell me a way, dear professor,
Their goldfish record to smash.
How I envy those grand Harvard he-men
With achievements so perfectly fine
In swallowing goldfish and sitting up trees,
While all I can do is just pine.
For it must take a great deal of learning
So thrilling a champion to be
In the art of swallowing goldfish
And sitting all day in a tree.
And think what it means to our nation
To rear men with so noble an aim
To excel in swallowing goldfish
And sit in a tree for their Dame. Leona Joy Gordan. The Boston Herald.
