Purpose – A satire on academic school board meetings.
Design/methodology/approach – A poetic reflection on the proclivity of academics for lengthy meeting debates on matters of no importance.
Findings – Meetings tend to attract and sustain lengthy speeches and debates that often produce little beyond the self-amusement of participants who enjoy debate and the boredom of those who feel obliged to attend.
Research limitations/implications – The reader is invited to identify with any of the participants in such occasions.
Originality/value – A satirical reflection on the actors, motivations and consequences of time-consuming academic meetings.
