DECONSTRUCTING TENURE, A PURIFICATION CHANT :YANKEE GO HOME!
FIRST Yankee, go home!
Take your so-called performance art, your shocking scatology, your post-menopausal new age self-hazing rituals, your reverse sexism,your curt dismissal of dialogue, your violent subconscious, your failing health, and go home!
SECOND Yankee, go home!
Take your supposed fame, your single-spaced 100 page resume, your clownish disregard for administrative authority, your feminist rage, your international reputation, your unruly classes, your bogus spirituality, your tragic death wish, your working class snobbery, your inability to communicate, your resistance to becoming a team player, your obsessive-compulsive need to confess and autobiographize everything, and go home!
THIRD Yankee, go home!
Take your bizarre comments, your dangerous classroom experiments, your miserable grading system, your need to be a guru, your threat of terrorism, your controversial subject matter, your permissive touchy-feelie assignments, your habit of analyzing everyone's last name, your distorted art therapy, your bad breath, your reluctance to give formal critiques, and, go home!
FOURTH Yankee, go home!
Take your off-color comments, your immature social skills, your undeserved book contract, your bribed course evaluations, your litigious slandering, your infantile frozen needs, your unconscious sabatoging, your parsimoniousness, your inability to handle your stardom, your need to compromise the health and welfare of your students by allowing their dangerous projects, and go home!
FIFTH Yankee,go home!
Take your victimized pity-partying attitudes, your gender confusion, your subversive exhibitionism, your pagan mythologizing, your pornographic perversions, your high school quality performances, your alcholic stuttering and, go home!
SIXTH Yankee,go home!
Take your departures from excellence, your poisonous vibes, your cronish babblings, your mean-spirited negative addictions, your inability to teach, your professional ignorance, your masurbatory eccentricities, your thrift shop wardrobe, your poor role modeling, your terrifying endurances, and, go home!
SEVENTH Yankee, go home!
Our customer driven, intelligent students are tired of your stand up routines masquerading as teaching, and your detractors are hungry for your crummy salary.Damm Yankee, go home and stay home.
GO OM,OM OMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.
