You will hear about this scene
Over and over
Generation after generation
(as long as Western Civilization exists)
of a lad in the university library
Amidst stacks of books
And papers when suddenly
In joyful desperation
Will let out a groan
Of protest
As he throws
All the materials
High into the air
And walks out of the library
A freed man!

Irwin R. Shaw - 1981
