Tickets, Please!

(Without comment, the Crimson reprints this poem which originally appeared in its Yale Game issue for 1935.)

Harvard men are mad as crickets

Popping up from all the thickets

Piping, "Mr. Bingham! What's

The story on the tickets?"

What's the story here?

Who can raise a cheer

When his neck is full of cricks

Off in section 36?

After all, it's common knowledge

Half the fun of Harvard College

(And there's nothing quite so nifty)

Is a ticket on the fifty.

This is getting rather scarey,

How explain to Jane and Mary
