Science Conference

(With apologies to Omar Khayyam)                           D. P. Stern, 4 Dec. 1980


    The moving finger points along the vu-graph screen
    No wit, no piety in what is seen
    The conferees in bored attention sit
    No use in trying make some sense of it.

    A book of science fiction underneath the bough
    Far, far away from where I'm sitting now
    Somewhere amid a scenic wilderness
    I wish I could be there, but don't know how.
