A SHEEPSKIN IS MORE THAN A DIPLOMA

AND LESS THAN A DIPLOMAT



 

On whose say so

is this takedown

and upsurge

 

whose primer

packs the punch

 

whose grammar

is primetime

pristine

 

who’s primal

or primeval

 

and the duke thereof

 

whose beef is prime rib

whose primary condiment

is horseradish

 

whose sheepskin condom

is the pump handle

that primes the pump?

 

-Patrick Theron Erickson
