Little Wisdom Boy

 

 

“We love your lectures, Little Wisdom Boy!”
Although you’re well past forty, still you sell
precocity — and endlessly annoy
the weary with your chickenshit from hell.
Your head swells — but your fans think swelling’s swell.
You’re a moronic Mr. Malaprop–
but all your groupies wait for you to tell
the lame tales of your childhood and let drop
your empty aphorisms. Not a cop,
you nonetheless are issuing citations.
You are a garden toad that can’t quite hop.
You are a peddler of skewed demonstrations.
It is the irony that we enjoy.
We love your lectures, Little Wisdom Boy.
