This Lecture is Taking Forever: A Villanelle

This lecture is taking forever
I think it’s already been hours
When will this end? Seems like it’s never

I’ve noticed a chill in the weather
And watched the dying leaves and flowers
This lecture is taking forever

My waiting’s a hopeless endeavor 
The taste in my mouth ever sours
When will this end? Seems like it’s never

Time drags so far you cannot measure
Unless you have some unseen powers
This lecture is taking forever

I’ve no patience left whatsoever
There’s nothing left to do but cower
When will this end? Seems like it’s never

With gray hair and skin tough as leather 
My lecture lays peaceful on flowers
This lecture is taking forever
When will this end? Seems like it’s never
