Academic protest songs

@EvoNeuro added some new Academy-inspired lyrics to classic 60s era protest songs, which were just awesome. It inspired me to reword another song—classic, though not from the 60s.

Old profs oh yes they rob I
Sold I to the post-doc ship
Minutes after they passed me
from the Ph - D pit
But my brain was made strong
by the boot of the Academy
We forward this grad generation
Won't you help to sing
these songs of vain hope
Cause all I ever have
Rejection songs
Rejection songs

Almost feels wrong to use this particular song. But, I think the greatness of the real song can easily survive this silliness.
