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

Yes it’s me who 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.
