A Poem by Judy Maxwell

My inspiration came, as usual, in the dead of night. I was thinking about my life and my future -- and this poem sort of popped right into my head (or out of it).


She's filled with warnings I can't heed
Does experience mean everything --
Or nothing at all?
Do I dare ponder my future
Or does destiny destroy all hope?

In school we're taught to respect
Dirty old perverts --
Do said figures hold the answers?
Do the answers exist at all?
What is the question?

seems like a good poem to me....articulate, the line 'dirty old perverts' BTW. I remember my time in academia...I miss it...
