Sixty-three is finished for the evening.
In gratitude he searches for his seat.
Xeroxes of papers back his claim
That he has labored long and not in vain,
Yet those in charge refuse each proffered sheet.

They say they care not one fig for his reasoning,
However philosophical or sweet.
Regardless of the protests in his name,
Each day he must continue all the same:
Earnest, honest, too engaged to cheat.
