Gunga Dean

Gunga Dean

by Eric Schulman National Radio Astronomy Observatory Charlottesville, Virginia

You may travel far and near
While you're safely tenured here,
And you'll teach and research without thinking of it,
But when it came to meetings,
You just let me take your beatings,
And I helped you 'til I got disgusted with it.
Now in administration,
Where I had great frustration,
A-servin' to the needs of faculty,
Of all the suited crew,
The worst one that I knew
Was our Arts and Science leader, Gunga Dean.
It was "Dean! Dean! Dean!"
You short-sighted, penny-pinching, Gunga Dean!
Though I curse you and I hate you,
By the President that made you,
You are better paid than I am, Gunga Dean!
