Johann Gaertner: At An Academic Conference (From Latin)

At an Academic Conference
Johann Gaertner (1912-1996)
Translated by A.Z. Foreman

He talks and he talks, that famous geezer,
A verbose and vapid crowd-displeaser.
Behold the man who, in a few
Fleeting decades, will be you.

The Original:

In Congressu Scholastico
Johannes Gaertner

Loquitur, loquitur, senex famosus,
garrulus, aridus, vaniverbosus.
Ecce qui temporis impetu
paulos post annos eris et tu.
