From Either Pulpits Or Podiums - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Teachers teach.
And preachers preach.
To do it from either pulpits,
Or podiums. Forget the desks.
To lecture those taking notes.
OR pretend to sit listening intentively.

And when these performances are done,
The only thing people seem...
To keep with them remembered,
Is how who used stunning gestures...
To deliver a message addressed.
But few will leave understanding the content.
