The gremlins they were lurking
She counted one and all
Juuuudy
‘What if I forget my lines?
Hello, my name is...
Or off the stage I take a fall?’
Is there a doctor?
‘I might stumble over all my words
mumbo jumbo
And say not what I mean
I’m confused.
Then no one will want our wares
And I’ll let down the whole team.’

JUDY, FIRED!
‘What if I lose my train of thought
And let my throat go dry!?
I’ll be a presentation frog!’
Then poor Judy starts to cry.
The gremlins they were laughing
They’d prove poor Judy right
But coming softly on the wind:

I’m amazing.
And you’ll soon find you have a flow.'
And I’m almost finished.
I’m amazing.
‘But what about disasters?’
Said poor Judy, vexed,
‘Like a nuclear meltdown,
Or on the front row sits my ex!?’

‘The only way to really

Be at ease with what you do

Is to practice jolly hard at it—

In front of a camera too!
‘There you’ll see just what you look like,
From the viewer’s point of view
You’ll know what it is they’re thinking
I understand everything.
Because you’ve seen it too!
‘Try not to sit and learn a script,
Hello INHALE My name is Judy. EXHALE
And recite it as it is.
Hello, my name is Judy.

Instead it’s best to have some notes
HELLO

And rehearse the general gist.

If they’re dull and boring
Your dreams might as well get shelved.
GAME OVER
‘Instead they must be visual
With good design to boot.
Just that and no bad bullets
Will help you sell your loot.
Interaction is what we aim for,
And harmony besides
Between our lovely Judy
And her equally lovely slides.
‘At last I think I’ve got it!’
Judy laughed aloud.
‘I’m really not that scared now,
And of my slides, I’m proud.’
The Presentation Fairy smiled.
