I sent a link to this to my daughter who has just completed her BSc in Australia, I'm sure she'll be amused. Your teacher was, of course, right - but you have to learn the rules before you can start bending and breaking them. Your poetic echo of his humorous 'snarky' sarcasm would appear to be a backhanded tribute to him insomuch as you have remembered his words. So it's well said by him and well written by you. Loved it!

Best regards, Peter

    Thank you very much, Peter. I really like your reviews a lot because they have so many layers to them. You give the pieces you're reviewing more than just a cursory thought, and that's very encouraging to a writer. I really appreciate that. xo

Dear Author,
I enjoyed you quoting familiar quotes on BS, MS and PhD! What I enjoyed the most was your two final verses: "And yet, where would he have been without his education?" I agree, and it takes many years of school and a great deal of effort and dedication to achieve a PhD (plus a Postdoctorate)! Excellent contest entry!
My best, Deborah

Very innovative and thought provoking. I love poetry with a bit of a twist and this certainly meets that DEGREE (pardon the pun) There are many of us who dwell on glibness as your professor did, yet at the same time are demeaning our own situation. Eloquently stated, Exceptionally received.

This is a jerky, true, analytical and reality poem speaks in a word today's value of American university education system and structure, it is rudely sarcastic or disrespectful, snarky or snide; well said, well done. Write-Inspire --DR ALCREATOR

    I never understand your reviews, Dude. They always totally baffle me. This one is so full of contradictory words and concepts that I have no idea whether you liked it or not.

This work has reached the exceptional level
Funny, engaging, empirically correct definitions of the infinitely demeaning thought that a bunch of letters after ones sir name might indicate a level of intelligence. Which is not, regrettably a truth. Great success with this paradoxical witty writing prompt!
