A Valediction: Forbidding Keynotes

With apologies most sincere to John Donne, CEO, Fixed Form EnterprisesThe canned and careful words they speak,Or parrot off the teleprompter,Do not waft so much as reekWith all the freshness of a dumpster. They bear the same relation toIdeas as an eight-bit versionOf Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit”Does to a violent execution. Keynotes combine the dynamismOf a Chinese imperial bureaucrat’s testWith the sexiness of onanismAnd the elegance of a vulture’s nest. CEOs and marcom jocks,Salesmen and specialists:Spare us all these vapid talksBefore we’re forced to slit our wrists.And journalists (an you love God)And bloggers, pod- and broad-casters,Why must you applaud this fraud? Refuse and you’ll get drunk much faster! Keynote speakers, stand relieved(though not as much as those you’ve bored),You’ve done your bit, you’ve made your stand,It’s time to hit the conference floor. Better yet, the bar’s through there,Take a load off, grab a beer,One-on-one, we’ll lend an earAnd face-to-face we might just hear.
