Discussion: For Anthony’s PhD

My good friend Anthony recently completed and received his Doctorate.  He had a celebration in Sydney last night and I was asked to write a poem for the occasion.  Anthony is a dear friend of mine and I am very proud of him for achieving this. The poem was very well received by Anthony and by the other guests.

The poem is structured like a thesis, it has a proposal, a literature review, a description of the methodology, the findings and the contribution.  The proposal was written based on what Anthony discussed with me during the process.  The literature review looks at the process of literature reviews, as does the methodology.  The findings bear no direct relationship to the proposal, except for the second one, and the contribution is an in-joke for those who know Anthony.
