The Redundant Pundit

Do not invite him to dinner
The redundant pundit
Because he will expostulate during the appetizer
Make suppositions during the entree
Rehash through dessert
And play the devil’s advocate over coffee.

Getting rid of him is difficult because
The redundant pundit
Postulates theories well into the night
Whether you provide brandy or not.
Your audience alone intoxicates him.

The only way to fool
The redundant pundit
Is to place a mirror
Near him to distract his gaze
As you escape.

Works every time.
