Harvard; Leading the Blind

“See the statue here …?”

The step-on guide drones;

Way she mouths it,

It’s not a question

“One statue, three lies here,”

She isn’t speaking

So much as reading a script.

“First off, he didn’t found the university.

Second off, he wasn’t born

On the date carved

Below the statue;

Thirdly he didn’t look that way,

Fact is nobody knows

What he looked like …

As model for the carving they just

Picked a good lookin’ student”

She was at the head of

Our party for three hours.

I heard every word …

But that’s all

I can recall:

One statue, three lies.
