Bumped. A must read parody. GO BRUINS. -N
Thanks (and apologies) to Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel:
Hello booster, my old friend
I've come to shake you down again
Because an investigation slowly creeping
Is asking where Reggie Bush was sleeping
And the violation that was huge financial gain
Within our sound of silence.
In restless conscience I walked alone
The narrow path I've never known
Neath the halo of Coliseum's ramp
I turned my back on Diogenes' lamp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a Yahoo site
That split the night
And touched our cone of silence.
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand dollars, maybe more
Runners taking without speaking
NCAA hearing without listening
People writing checks that fishwraps never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.
"Fools" said I "you do not know
Silence at SC always grows
Record my words and I'll un-seat you
Take call logs, an OJ might beat you"
And my words like silencer weapons fell
In the wells of silence.
And the alumni bowed and prayed
To the football God they made
And the stadium flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said "The words of the offenders
Are written and shredded inside the walls
At Heritage Hall"
And whispered in the sounds of silence.
