UCIkus: Haikus from the Class of 2013

by ursavoice

Our Classmates

 

Two thousand thirteen

Serio guey, it’s been fun

I’ll miss you baybee

 

The big mystery:

Whether Angel will show up

to graduation

 

Andrea Bentler

SBA Rep defends us

From all the young guns

 

Missed classes today

Peter, can I have your notes?

Oh, comedy gold

 

Objection, hearsay!

Oxman approaches the bench

Mock Trial over.

 

The day brightens up

The sun came out? No, it’s Meg

And she has cookies

 

Question was simple

Cue cold-call onanism

Talks for whole damn class

 

Worried the campus

Will suffer donut withdrawal

After Akhil leaves

 

Been awake for days

Something urgent to be done

Still slept more than Ed

 

Get my first client

Sunny asks, “but is he hot?”

Some things never change

 

The Class of 2013

 

Remember our class

As heroic whiners who

Freed you from ALWD

 

These awesome people

Brought here by shared hopes and dreams

And/or scholarships

 

Irvine, blah city

Better get some food before

The sun’s done setting

 

Two thousand thirteen

The adopted middle child

Of UCI law

 

The school becoming

Other than it ought to be

The sun still rises

 

UCI law school

I thank you eternally

For splitting the bill

 

I’m ever grateful

For the opportunity

But I’ll root elsewhere

 

On Institution-Building

 

Not scared of the bar

How can I possibly fail

when I know Tunkl

 

A degree’s fine, but

A lifetime right to name-drop

Chemerinsky, wins     

 

Wonder if my job

Will ever be as complex

As registration

 

Spring semester comes

Faculty all brilliant and

On sabbatical

 

Food, Food, Nowhere

 

Lori’s Kitchen:

We miss your wagon of grub

Apple fritter’ll do

 

Want to find a job

Almost as desperately

As a good sandwich

 

Food cart still sucks

But at least Which Wich is near

Still no sour candy
