The Professor's Lessons - Poem by Imelda Ortega Suzara

Being worldly, filled with erudition,
Professor Helmut Wroth, with a Master
Of Communication, perfect diction,
Teaches English, although his thoughts faster
Than his foreign students wroth confusion!
Language was his forte, but Metaphysics
Influence on Earth's civilization,
Plus the occult and spiritual psychics
Gained him the reputation - Eccentric
Egocentric! His wisdom from lost planes
Of existence, various ethnocentric
Groups, foreign travels, including aliens
And invisible beings, oblivious
To others, were to him very obvious!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Note: about an eccentric educator who teaches foreign students English with his Master of Communication and interest in Metaphysics and Occult studies; for a poetic play of the same title, done by telepathic collaboration.

    You are able to bend the sonnet form in interesting shapes. Good control. Well written. (Report) Reply
