ON A CERTAIN LECTURER
Who shall be nameless . . .

Dear God, this is intolerable !
How much longer ? How much more ?
I never in my life endured
Such a colossal bore !

His every blessed spoken word
Is actually read,
And at a furious headlong pace
That makes me long for bed.

There's just one consolation
That cheers my heavy heart;
He's only got five minutes more
And then we can depart.
