The Expert

The expert lectures. That is what he does.
And even if he finds the subject dull,
and even if he hasn’t got a clue
about the subject, still he rattles on
as if the world is listening agog
to catch the drivel dripping from his lips.
Unfortunately, what he says is just
long strings of slime that quiver off his jowls
as he proclaims, pronounces, postures; and
if no one’s listening he doesn’t care.
He is the only audience he needs.
