The Crimson's Holiday Ode

Our Annual, Poetic Reflections on the Year Gone By

Annually at holiday time While others are filling stockings,

We, the Ed Chairs of The Crime

Reflect with cheerful mocking.


The year's events are always the theme

Of our mirthful little ditty.


We hope you'll laugh until you scream--

Not to would be a pity.

The year began with quite a big splash

When we took charge of this daily.

Out with the stale, in with the brash!

Our task we took up gaily.

Our opinions are now much stronger

And they lean much more to the right.

The knee-jerks reign here no long

They saw us and they took flight.
