Death Warrants

Paying for their own execution,

the collegians trod on


Trapped inside their smart cellular phones,

in groups, but still alone


The administrators harken back,

slave owners long outlawed


And charge the most outrageous sums

for ‘knowledge’ truly flawed


The best among them dropping out,

before real harm is done


Like Gates and Jobs and Zuckerberg,

the future on the run


As zombies risen from the dead,

they march from class to class


Chasing a fatal document

—death warrants duly cast


(Villanova University Campus: September, 2019)
