The Podium

To the podium they approached
Orators, statesmen, and educators alike
They stood so very tall
All the celebrities
Famous voices
Well rehearsed
The eminent
The notables
The famous
Speaking out
Loud & clear
Rang proud
Thru the hall
The echoing
The busy air
The talking
The reading
The joking
The singing
The lecturing
The educating
The informing
All the speeches
Supported by the base
To keep the podium upright
Where all the orators stood thru’ the ages
