Illusions and illustrations he showers liberally,
Examples are endless and questions encouraged.
New ways of thinking,
Explored creatively in lectures and worksheets.
His explanations flawless,
His audience…less than captivated.
Texting misspelled words beneath the table,
Typing grammar suicides on Facebook walls,
They skip the unchecked homework,
Do a research paper,
And maybe take another class
With Professor Socrates
To get one more decent grade
From a man who thinks too much
Of those who think too little.
