Symbology: An Academic Reflection



I realized
this morning
the Da Vinci Code
has been out long
enough that there is
probably an army of young
Symbology instructors
adjuncting
at directional schools,
wondering
why their lives are
nothing
like Robert Langdon's.

In their darker
moments,
they wonder
why they didn't listen
 to their uncle and
major in something
practical, like
engineering.


When they get
whimsical,
they go over
to the archaeology
department and swap
stories where they hear
about the exploits
of one Dr. Jones.
