From Town To Town - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

From town to town
Roaming
Though
In his heart
He feels the pain
Of a heart attack
Approaching its
Tenth year.

Yet
He gathers up
In pain
And roams
From town to town
Like to a beggar
He begs the universities
To give him just one lecture
To all the students
Gathered.

But
Once gathered
There was just silence
As
The Intellectual spoke
The short fat man of flesh
A giant in the heart
Colossus in the brain
Colossus relative.

And
Once
The lecture finished
After the usual
Ovation standing
The Intellectual
Humbly disappears
And
To the next universities
And lectures
Prepares his way.

Thus
He
Prepares a web of links
Brings
Himself to all Earth
All that he has
He shares

And
Humans hear.
And
Time will come
When in awe
Humans
Will but utter his name.
