Ineffectual

Lecture is a boring word

It conjures visions of sleeping

Endless hours huddled in lecture chairs

Eyelids slowly meeting

And visions of others

Similarly disinclined

To do much more than doodle

Simple to complex images appear

Or people dreaming of strudel

And then there is the other image

Of parent lecturing child

To nag and harp and carry on

I think the child sings a song

The word and action

Equals ineffectual.
