Haiku for the Vagaries of Academia

Pharyngula: Odd Academic Habits

For the Humanities Professor Reading from his Own Book:

a) A turtle-dove lands
on the same branch as last year,
and sees his own ghost.

b) Tumbleweeds straggle
o'er the wide, windless desert.
Nobody watches.

For the Student who, with Great Temerity, Uses the Toilet During a Lecture:

A frog leaves the pond,
perhaps tired of lilypads,
or not watertight.
