The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, June 1929

An Evangelist

An Evangelist

[Thoughts inspired on seeing the cloak-room door after hearing Joey Mount joy advocating Gowns for students.]

Men's Robing Room!
Artistic hand which 'wrote that there,
Did'st have sense of impending doom
Or just a touch of humour rare?

O! Champion of Debate,
Of Academic figure
Why dost thou wish to seal our fate
And robe us all with monkish vigour?

For this you keenly strive
Is it to build tradition?
Or dost think we'd better thrive
As Oxford's young edition?
