Our mailman, handing me something from the old alma mater, blurted out, "If you went to Harvard, how come you're not rich?" I said, "Well, Shane, if you would stop bring the missus all these catalogs..."


Dear Harvard Reunion
My alma fundraiser
An amazing appraisal:
I scored my dream
Ain’t talkin about politics (failure and despair)
Ain’t talkin about money (never made any)
I’m talking about biscuits and honey,
Chickens and peaches and cream

Yes I know I used to call for
Your redistribution
“No private solutions!”
In speeches I’d scream
New Yorker-than-thou punk
Conclusions all foregone
Now I’m almost from Oregon
Down by the old mill stream

And I still believe in
Sharing the wealth, boys,
Still got my health, boys
And I wish you the same
I didn’t deserve it (God knows)
Almost ceased to expect it
Don’t let me neglect it one minute more
I scored my dream.
