To all my new, fellow alumni

I hope the roller coaster was kind enough to you.
It may have tried a time or two
to dislodge and fling you
forty feet face-first into the ground,
but you held fast.

You rode the rails,
suffered through the hard banks,
and vaguely remembered learning something
about the powers of different forces.

I hope you’ve made the most of the ride,
because the next one,
whichever you choose,
is about to start in just a few minutes.
