Poetry from the Special Collection

While looking for an article last week to answer a patron's request, the Special Collection staff came across this poem published in the Howard Crimson. 

The poem gracefully illustrates that no matter what year college students are eating in the Caf, no one likes people who cut in line. Jim Summers, the author, wrote many other pieces of comic poetry that appeared in the Crimson through 1961 and 1962, but this was our favorite.
