Honoured to be invited to speak at a one day workshop,
I survey the audience to decide when the lecture should stop.
We all agree that 10am is a good time to take a break,
I commit to sticking to the schedule for everyone’s sake.
As a professional lecturer, I’d flown a distance to speak,
They audio and videotaped me after I gave the final critique.
We broke for morning coffee, I slipped off quickly to the bathroom,
After completing my task, I pulled up my pants and felt doom,
Seems in my rush to relieve myself, I just completely forgot,
I still had my microphones on, I guess not such a big shot!
