Premature Vrijmibo

Het is weekend. Zo het racen. Eerst de moraal.
Ik, kleine slaaf van poëzie en taal,
mij was ter borst de eerste melk al schraal.
Zó droef, zó dun klonk 't moedermonds verhaal,
waar het kanon in doorklonk van Transvaal,
en zó vol tranen was het kleine lied
van bruut verraad en simpel boers verdriet,
dat, wat mij voedde, woord en melk en brood,
dit àl doortrokken was van dood en dood.
Prettig weekend. En be nice.

The Times

The CUNY political scientist Corey Robin once said something which has always stayed with me. I’m afraid I’m paraphrasing from a social media post that’s probably ten years old at this point, so forgive me if I’m a little inexact. Robin, who got his PhD at Yale, was talking about the problem with the superficially leftist politics of a lot of Yale professors. He said that they very well may espouse commendably egalitarian beliefs, preach equality, stand explicitly against elitism - but still, every day, they look at themselves in the mirror in the morning and say, “Holy fuck, I teach at Yale.”
