Trinity Term

Undergraduates in summer
    Having sex and playing sport
Grow sick of their diploma
    And the lectures they are taught

Sick for idleness and sunshine
    Sick for soggy chips and beer
For the moped streets of London
    For a flat and a career

Oxford is over, and overdone
    Only the Old will preserve it
But we, my love, we are Young
We did nothing to deserve it.
by Paul Abbott
