‘Twas a bit before Christmas, when things began to get heated
A disputed Cadre article had been abruptly deleted
But now, it would seem, that people hate our guts
And are roasting us on the fire, rather than the chestnuts
What the heck happened? Did we do something wrong?
What did we do to make your feelings so strong?
Did we compromise our integrity as a consistent news outlet?
Yes? Oh. Shit.
For those of you just joining, here is the situation
An SU Exec. released their letter of resignation
An anonymous response questioned its content
The war had begun, and it was quite the event
Now the Cadre was caught in the middle of it all
Allegations were made and we made a tough call
Our goal is to get the conversation started
Even if the material is not all lighthearted
Were we true to this recently? Nope. We weren’t.
The angry feedback came in a smooth, steady current
How in today’s world do we avoid being hypocrites?
Please, dear God, we just want some hot chocolate
So here we are now, we’re not here to justify
We expect criticism when things like this go awry
An unfortunate way to send off our last week
But unfortunately, it’s about to become much more bleak
We editors of the Cadre all choose to resign
Enough is enough, this is the end of the line
We have made our decision, thus we’ll be on our waya
So long, from Drew, Via, Jing, Elizabeth, Daniel & Taya
Nah, just kidding. Could you imagine?
Quitting our jobs in such an unusual fashion?
That’d be unprofessional, and terrible timing
And we’d be ridiculed by all this repetitive rhyming
It is safe to say that it all got out of hand
And it is safe to say this is not what we planned
What more can we say, other than that we are keen
To apply what we learned in 2016
Until then, fellow students, sorry for the fuss
We now know what it looks like underneath the bus
Have a very Merry Christmas, be glad and rejoice
And let Michael soothe you with his sexy voice
