Power Point – Yet Missed-the-Point
The screen supports the projector beam.
The projected tables with a color scheme,
Are way too many here to count,
And the speech becomes mere background sound
The speaker’s hooked up to his machines.
No matter what his babbling means,
No matter what he’s presenting here,
You see it - and it’s in your ear.
I’ll either listen or just stare -
My concentration just isn’t there.
I’m left here with a vague impression
Despite a lengthy PowerPoint session.
If the effect is but synthetic,
The results are something quite pathetic.
The opposite of PowerPoint,
If anything, it’s ‘Missed-the-Point.’
