this place is a zoo

English: Cary Quad (formally Franklin Levering Cary Quadrangle), a student residence hall on the campus of Purdue in West Lafayette. Spitzer Court is the open courtyard within the quad. Photo looks north from Stadium Avenue. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

living in the zoo
can be rather fun
of course, there are some rules
and some homework to be done

but things are hectic
living caged here
somebody is yelling
nearly every day of the year

frisbees are flying
down the narrow halls
stereos spend all night
beating on dorm room walls

and every weekend
watch out without a doubt
because that’s the time
when the zoo lets out

roaming the streets
looking to score some sorority panties
loudly serenading all the girls
and jealous of the fraternities

so, just don’t feed the zoo animals
and yes, good girls should be wary
because you’re entering the zoo
when you’re coming to visit someone at Cary

    LOL. I wrote this my first year at Purdue when I was in Cary Quad. Any place full of freshman engineers is a crazy place. It just is. 🙂
