July 24: Thursday Panels

Three hours of keeping watch and five at play,
Analysis, professional enrichment,
Is not an awful way to spend the day,
Despite a slight but lingering disappointment.

It’s not that there aren’t costumes by the score
That have been built with cleverness and care-
It’s not that there aren’t awesome panels, for
The guests are frequently beyond compare.

This problem is a first-world one at best;
These hypotheticals for choice events:
Will TV panels help keep me abreast?
Will academic panels be too tense?

Like Plato’s cave, Hall H contains a show
Of gorgeous shadows we can never know.
