Essay Question On The Purity Test

That will be the maximum number of words,750 little ways to articulate personal experience as proof of some sort
Curious to see how you fit your personal history and geography and cultural mores into a unified body
To set a limit on lust drives he, the student, crazy
He steps outside demographics to pare himself down to a pulsating lump-all animal urges

I've slept with 63 women but I don't pound my chest about it
He called it a trophy but that was not the kind of logic that moved an examiner
It was a conclusion reached by cheating, copying off someone else's paper
There are two of us but only one will hang his or her head in shame in the registrar's office

And when he puts down his pencil, his answer can be summarized as follows:
All go through the tunnel but some never reach the other side
They find their way barred by guilt and fear
They get lost and end up in a toxic habitat with other crocodiles
Growling at strangers with amorous aggression
