In full transparency, this poem was modeled after the poem “Birth of Eventually Venus,” by Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982).
The Education Professor: Birth of Eventually Narcissism
Heaved up by an ocean of pretension
By the hordes of psychotic sycophants
Beyond the reach of reason
In the nexus of fantasy
And undulating usurpation
The education professor,
Spews and expectorates in tombs
Clutching his undeserved honors about him
And gloating with myopic eyes
Upon the world that serves him alone
