We are back on campus and some things are the same but also, some things are different. In this period of transition times can be tough so here are some poems to get us through.
As a Kenyon student, I find the only appropriate and rewarding form of expression to be that of the written word so it made sense to manifest some of the raging emotions into haikus. I’ll (graciously) accept my award from the English department whenever they’re ready.

I must battle for my sched
And for my housing
Who did this to us?

The beginning of the year was like the beginning of a party, and as you entered the activities fair every club seemed just as promising as every human looks at an Old Kenyon Party. Full “beer-goggles” on, you put your name down for everything. Ducks for the Republicans? Sign me up. Or were you fooled by the condoms and candy the Health Center was giving out? In your excitement to sign up for the Kenyon DJs, did you also not realize your rambunctious friend was also signing you up for Paws against Humanity? Well, regardless you now have more emails in your box than D-Cat himself, and although it’s just February it’s time for some spring-cleaning.
