Additional Information

Duncan Nelson, possessed of a wit
Of the rhyming sort, has writ
As UMass's laureate
Verses that glory at
Our "Occasions" - "kaboodle and kit"!
His courses form a fit
Of readings, Am and Brit,
And he'll term by term waffle
From Comp, to Short Novel,
To Adolescent in Lit.
A Harvard PhD.
He taught there, then at MIT,
But, to tell true, prefers
The lively, diverse
Population at UMB!
