The Idea of a Diversity

With apologies to John Henry (Cardinal) Newman, author of The Idea of a University

Diversity, Diversity,
All hallowed is thy name.
We bow in awe before thy throne,
And play the numbers game.

Diversity, Diversity,
We love thee best of all.
We lean on thee to drop the bar
For students in the fall.

Diversity, Diversity,
Your dictates we adore.
We use your name to exclude those
Who have a higher score.

Diversity, Diversity,
Who knows what might have been,
Had we been forced to overlook
The color of their skin?

Diversity, Diversity,
With you we can aggrieve,
Those hillbillies who think success
Is something you achieve.
