Reflections: Intellectualism

To Dine, To Die; Conversations spiral While thunderous eyes Grasp concepts to recycle. Constant debt crisis A political paradox Grating social devices Over the sorting of socks. Pseudo-analysis An endless groan Argumental paralysis The debate grants no throne. Existentialism Over a roast Potatoes won't listen To who talks the most. "That point is so interesting" The floor is open for chat "What is real?" not a thing "Meow" adds the cat.

Blowhards listening mostly for their turn to speak (or to remember a good turn of phrase), seldom to hear what is actually said. Yep, played that game many times in the academic world. Good satire, Dan!
