A Reading from the Gospel According to Higher Education

Michael Baruzzini

You have heard it said:
	“Do not let schooling interfere with your education.”
But I say unto you, 
that it is not what is within a man that makes him good,
		but rather what he displays without.
	You are like antique books: inside, full of wisdom,
		but outside having nothing to make us look at you.
	For what does it profit a man if he hath wisdom and knowledge,
		but hath not credentials?
Therefore, I say unto you:
	Seek to earn credit, and do not pursue unlucrative learning.
	For as the résumé says, so surely the heart of a man is also.
