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
