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 completes his explanations,
the concepts he conveys will have to keep,
since he can’t convey 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.
