The Swagger Started Long Ago
Brodhead Morning Briefing 5
No, I didn't oversleep.
The International House of Pancakes
Was having a big All-You-Can-Eat!
Did you see my quote in Newsday?
About why Pressler got the boot?
Thought I'd get in another shot,
While he's trying to recruit!
I think we came off very well
It's time to play offense.
Folks should find it uber-droll
YOU...calling Danowski...a "mench."
The article got across our narrative
The Brodhead-Burness Creed.
OUR "reputation" is "paramount!"
Kick the kids out in the street!
And any one who thinks of suing
Will now have second thoughts!
They'd face revelations of "loud music!"
And criminal urination off the porch!
I emphasized the "arrogance."
Oh no, not of YOU and ME!
Oh, drat, this is a brand new suit!
And I dribbled maple syrup on my knee!
Yeah, I was at my verbal best
Did you catch my parting thrust?
When he asked about apologies...
I countered back, "For what?"
Dick, do you know you're very lucky?
I'm not just savvy with the Press!
Who best to personify Duke University...
Then the glib, glamourous...John Burness!
