A New Year Poem for ReproSoc 2016
Written and performed by Puff Dolly, the Sheep Poet - available to download as a PDF.
First bred in sociology,
ReproSoc began as three.
No sheep were there,
It's only fair,
That said, there was a sheepish cast,
To something born
So quick and fast
Not unlike a winter ewe
Joyful, buoyant,lustrous too.
At first among the tiny flock,
We all took to stripy socks
We launched our books
And found our nook
In G8, where we sang a lot.
We ran events and got more staff,
Got stuck in to toil and graft,
Found our Logo
(Yes, an embryo!)
Took selfies for our photo mast.
Now it’s three years hence and lo,
ReproSoc knows how to grow!
We are twenty going strong
And still singing songs.
As the New Year finds its feet,
(Yes, like a wily mountain sheep),
Our path is set,
Our way is clear,
To write, and share -- and then retweet
To work, and sing - and then to eat!
To post, to read, to talk, to think,
To wonder where we’re going next,
To make our blog the very best!
Here’s to stripy socks and reproShop,
And ReProSess and ReproDoc,
And ReproCaliFrastic Tea!
And Soc 10, Dept Soc, HSS Faculty!
Here’s to ReproFuturity!
Happy 2016 Reprosockers!
