Coyote University

with one comment

. . . is completely contained in
this poem right here which
tells how anyone–yes, even you!–
may award themselves or another
a degree from C.U.: can the candidate
answer Yes to these three questions?:

One: Has the candidate, as a true
daughter or son of our revered founder,
Coyote The First,
stepped onto our world campus
overflowing with false assumptions?

Two: Has the candidate then
tripped over ignored vital facts
to pratfall alarmingly?

Three: Has the candidate then
wandered off wounded and dazed,
misunderstanding all that had passed?

There we are!
And there we are again!
If you’ve found you or yours
fully qualified to join us, then,
Welcome! and, Congratulations. . . .

Our self-awarded diplomas
are completely invisible and
perfectly suited for framing
behind glass that views closely
the wall immediately behind it.
