A Song For Elizabeth Warren

(apologies to Paul Revere)

My CV couldn’t get any traction
‘Til I checked the “Minority” faction
Sure I may look like Wonder Bread
But my soul’s 1/32 Red

I wasn’t asked to justify that when
Harvard hired me away from Penn
Oh it may look like fraud or worse
But so what? I made them more diverse

Cherokee Professor, picked by Laurence Tribe
So proud to game, so proud to lie

They’ve made an issue of my self-selection
(Like “honor” counts in a close election!)
“Identity” is important when you’re
A suburban white gal who is up for tenure

Cherokee Professor, picked by Laurence Tribe
So proud to game, so proud to lie

    Is that racist or sexist? Both, somehow? It’s getting confusing. Thanks, Trayvon.

    I give it a 95. It had a nice beat and was easy to dance to.

    And thanks for the Paul Revere and the Raiders setting on the Wayback Machine!
