Random Poem:

Rector's Farewell 2014

A quiet reflection on a majestic quest
which I have not yet embarked on.
The responsibility of all
yet accountability of one
Our material progress is roofless
while our greatest challenge is our humanity.
We produce technological miracles
while simple kindness is dying.
Stepping our of a tribute room
for a tangible, humane legend
I'm reminded of my devolution by current standards
I made no modern miracle,
but this Spring my kindness is blooming...
