Goodnight Wake

(with apologies to Margaret Wise Brown)

In the great Twin City
winstonsalem
There was a chapel with a School of Divinity

And a picture of the first president of the university.
And there were twelve little trees that had been TP’d

And off-campus housing where parties were rousing
And a little old teacher who was a Baptist preacher.

And a moped, and a minivan,
2008 Dodge Grand Caravan Cargo Van
And an academic plan,
And a curriculum that taught that God was not just a man.
