"It's Your Decision"
Without question there is no
better use for the $5.00 Cap and
Gown fee than for the Cap &
Gown. After all, this is similar to
other fees related to the
attaining of a degree
application, tuition, room and
board, schedule changes,
transcripts, and so on.
Nonetheless, there is a fund
which should be established and
so many who should get into the
act will only stand and watch
the parade go by. Later they will
be totally unaware of another
missed opportunity.

in Us
Dear Stud And Uncle Slime
. . . due to an error in your
packet or a course closing, you
did not receive all the courses
you requested . . . Well that's
sweet, and its also a normal
predicament for all us students
on and during registration day.
You go in there and you have
about two minutes with
hundreds of other
disenfranchised students, to
make a simple decision on your
life. It was suggested by a fellow
drone while we were standing in
line, that if you don't get a
course they could at least tell
you what course you didn't get.
This way, registration wouldn't
be as disturbing as it is, that's
just on the surface though. See
you simple fuck, its an error in
your head, Slim Slygh, this
school, and today's society does
not make mistakes. Everybody
knows that we the stud-drones
are here to serve the machine
(Sieg Heil). Regardless, ain't
Slim cute when he's efficient.
So we all did our comic
phoney duck scene of registering
for our education, well that's the
way I view it anyway. I did have
the fortunance to rap to a few
fellow studs who asked me,
"Well what degree are you
working for, what are you going
to be, a BA, BS, or a BU?" I
proceeded to discuss some more
cosmic relationships, and this
stud asks me about degrees. It
seems that Slim and his cronies
have really sucked some peoples'
fine minds -- now they're just
the amerikan idea of niggers
(white or otherwise, no squirrels
"Mein furher, this young man
does not haf his papers -- Vhere
are your papers mein schmuck?"
"You do not haf your papers in
order, well you must go to the
end of the line, a gas chamber is
vaiting for you, See you in
Auswitch, the great fire oven in
the sky -- Sieg Heil!" "Sieg Heil
Mein Furher!"
So some funky assed
commander puts someone at the
head of the class, and you know,
its always slim pickings on the
way down, way down in the
heart of your educational brain,
locked, and put under key. And
then its very obvious to see that
no one give a fuck about
education in this god forsaken
hole. Experiencing registration is
a joke, its not real, but the most
disquieting fact of the matter is,
that it is real. This advisor tells
me that I can't take the courses I

want, Well I want this, Its
closed, Well I'll take it anyway,
You can't! I guess that told me,
but that dude-fuck is really
interfering with my education,
while all the while giving me a
new one; I just look under his
surface. Some good theatre
might have been to whip a can
of blood out and shot the
bastard, the pagan bastard.
So this guy is only adding to
my nightmare, and to further
relate our mendacity (or the
systems), we're gonna really
relate to this paper illustion,
we're going to get into the
Drop-Add dazes. Its just more
paper and nothing else. Only if
you could only shove that paper
and save a tree, Halt the
machine, I want to get off. Then
slinking down to the bathroom,
cop me a stall, whip out this pint
of Rye Whiskey, take a little hit
... Zow! What a rush!
Returning to the inner-stellar
hallways, dissolution is rolling
through the Isle of Man, or at
least through the hallways of
your brain; in thirty-three and a
third, no less. One just blows
around tryin' to fight this
confusion Hey, somebody say
something real, meaningful . . .
Attencion' Pleeze, courses
M4193-A and 85420-P have
been D-Eighteened, so check
your 014's and your Zero 0
Ones! Repeat, I say courses ....
his voice dies away, Take II -- a
long scream, primal at that. Still,
I feel insane, but secure in my
own madness.
Uncle Slim trucks by me,
sweating underarms swollen in
bureaurocracy, Sieg Hell! Ole
Slim, he's cool and regardless,
only gettin' a little red in the
face; But I'm not here to blow
Slim away, he's just doin' his
job. Maybe he could go a little
easier on his health, sit back and
take a simple suggestion; There
must be a better way. I mean,
man what are you doing, what
are you perpetuating, what are
you creating, why are you
destroying the right to free
education, why are you closing
the door to the light, why can't
registration be a three day trip
into understanding. There's got
to be another way cause this
other way only puts people
uptight, disatisfied, and aborted.
Regardless, one flew east, one
flew west, I went on over the
cuckoo's nest with McPatrick,
and we left Big Nurse with all
the rabbits for a good Irish
Drunk . . . this is the hangover.
