the reclusive intellect


here sits an intellectual man

who rests alone in thought

not bothering with other souls

and looking quite distraught

he deftly tames another task

perpetual observer

he dreams a better mousetrap and

electric coffee server

the world’s fornever grateful for

his fealty to the cause

of stretching human boundaries

through scientific laws

he never tires, never fades

he surely never quits

here sits the intellectual man

and sits and sits and sits


– 1983
