This week in verse by Laura N. '09

There's a song that describes exactly what I'm feeling right now.

Rather than write a real blog entry, I instead urge you to consider the following:

An MIT surveyor came upon the gates of Hell,
He looked the devil in the eye and said, “You’re looking well.”
The devil looked right back at him and said, “Why visit me?
You’ve been through Hell already ‘cuz you went to MIT.”

That is all.

    This is like totally off topic, but I am curious about all the collegeconfidential bashing. I don’t go to the site much myself so I really don’t know what MIT students especially Piper’12 find so objectionable. Answers anyone?

    Alex: IFHTP is one of the slogans of MIT. But you’ll get over it… eventually.

    All MIT students are masochists in a way. It’s our sacrifice for a greater good.

    hrough me you pass into the city of woe:
    Through me you pass into eternal pain:
    Through me among the people lost for aye.

    Justice the founder of my fabric mov’d:
    To rear me was the task of power divine,
    Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.

    Before me things create were none, save things
    Eternal, and eternal I endure.
    All hope abandon ye who enter here.

    Such characters in colour dim I mark’d
    Over a portal’s lofty arch inscrib’d:
    Whereat I thus: Master, these words import.
