Yes, i did.\ni'm a mustang,'\nhe gleamed with pride. \n\n\n\nwhen did you graduate?'\ni asked. \n\n\n\nhe answered,\n'in 1974.\nwhy do you ask?' \n\n\n\nyou were in my class!',\ni exclaimed. \n\n\n\nhe looked at me closely. \n\n\n\nthen, that ugly, \n\n\n\nold, \n\n\n\nbald, \n\n\n\nwrinkled faced, \n\n\n\nfat-assed, \n\n\n\ngray-haired, \n\n\n\ndecrepit \n\n\n\nson-of-a-bitch \n\n\n\nasked, \n\n\n\n\n'what did you teach???'
