NOT INSIDE THE LARGE HADRON COLLIDER





There was a Young Man who loved to turn on photons,

But he also cherished colliding with protons.

On the road, in the country, or in the city,

This Young Man liked to pick up a pretty kitty,

This Young Man who loved to turn on photons.

AT DEATH'S DOOR



 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
DEATH'S DOOR by William Blake
 

 
 
 

There was an Old Man who lived in Lahore
Whose day dreams were always about Death's door.
A smell of sulphur in the air made him yell:
Oh Death, where will I go, Heaven or Hell?”
Exclaimed this Old Man who lived in Lahore.

THERE ONCE WAS A LOVELY YOUNG LADY WHO LIVED IN SPAIN





There once was a lovely Young Lady who lived in

Spain,

And her favorite meal was soup with human

brain.

She went to morgues and cemeteries looking for

this cerebral ambrosia,

But unfortunately she had

anorexia nervosa,

This lovely Young Lady who lived in Spain.

THERE WAS A YOUNG MAN FROM PYONGYANG


 
 
 
There was a Young Man from Pyongyang

Who was obsessed with the Big Bang.

He stared and stared at the mighty Heavens,

And used a number system based on sevens,

THIS YOUNG MAN FROM

PYONGYANG.

THERE WAS AN OLD MAN WHO LIVED ON MONTSERRAT


 




There was an Old Man who lived on Montserrat,

And every week he smoked a pound of pot.

He read a lot to forget about politics,

And instead got high on pot and poetics,

This Old Man who lived on Montserrat.

A PREHISTORIC PET FISH


 
An international team of researchers says a fish called Microbrachius dicki is the first-known animal to stop reproducing by spawning and instead mate by having sex.
The primitive bony fish, which was about 8cm long, lived in ancient lakes about 385 million years ago in what is now Scotland.
The research is published in the journal Nature.

Young King Tut had a pet fish

That lived in a town called Kish.

The fish's name was Dicki

And he was mighty picky

About what VICTUALS he ate

AND WITH WHOM to propagate.

Autumn


 
This is the first day of autumn,

But the last leaf has not fallen---

And there is still a rose blossom!


Autumn's not the season of decay---

For proof interrogate the blue jay.
