corset & bougainvillea

Choking on ivy.

Alma Mater

Cornell will make you
Black. Blacker than you ever thought you'd be.
'Cause there's nothing like being called a nigger
by a PhD. Cornell can make you
Shout
Scream
The People. United.
Will Never Be Defeated.
Cornell English classes can make your
fist go up in the air. It's called
reflex     survival      system
Cause Cornell will make you
Brown. Cornell will make
the spic in you
come shining through
and all the people say Revolution.
Niggers, Spics fight back.
Turn Cornell upside down
make it
Black
and
Brown.
