The Proud Philosopher.

There was a young philosopher
Who proudly did declare
(With a rather pompous toss of her
Exquisite golden hair)
No dean would be the boss of her.
The dean said, “I don’t care.
I’m sure we’ll bear the loss of her,”
And fired her then and there.

    Poem seems to date from the same year as the type-writer. Nowadays there would have go several panels of inquiry, and who knows, maybe golden-haired-ones might be a protected sub-class.
