PONDEROUS PUNDIT

In  the  future,  


there’s  a  scientist  who  


arrives  at  what  is  ultimately  true,  


but,  since  the  only  way  to  share  his  view  


is  to  bore  his  listeners  through  and  through  


with  lectures  that  lull  to  literal  sleep  


before  he  expounds  his  explanations,  


the  concepts  he  conveys  will  have  to  keep,  


since  he  can’t  relate  his  revelations,  


at  least  not  to  a  conscious  audience.  


 


Even  his  published  papers  are  ignored,  


despite  the  fact  of  his  pre-­‐eminence;  


from  the  synopses,  readers  grow  bored.  


His  breakthrough  conclusions  produce  no  thrills,  


since  he  never  learned  any  people  skills.
