Green Cuisine

Lurking in fuzzy leftovers is seen
A quivering, crawling hairball of green
A florescent prune
Or cheese from the moon
Gurgles gastric, plastic alien spleen

The miser squire requires gluts of caffeine
To dissect this science project's gangrene
Harpoon on a spoon
Zoom to the saloon
Lunch ladies' supreme mystery cuisine.

The Man With Two Heads

The Man With Two Heads

There once was a man with two heads
Of letters and science well read
By the light of the moon
He could make juries swoon
Spinning truth so fast their ears bled!

Uncertainty Principle

There once was a particle in space 
Who moved at a leisurely pace.
   He measured his speed 
   but Heisenberg didn't heed 
And lost track of his place

If you are not a scientist or science enthusiast, Heisenberg's uncertainty principle is one of those fundamental properties of nature which means that you can measure position or momentum not both! Fortunately, this effect only becomes prominent with very small objects

Famous Last Line

                      Famous Last Line

              I once knew a poet named Anisha
             She wrote poems sipping Mimosa.
                    She did not care for critics
                     But she loved Mathematics.
          She solved sums on ordinate-abscissa

         She solved sums on ordinate – abscissa,
        calculated Logarithms-Mantissa.
                 She loved Literature
                  Maths, Science and Nature.
          Her Idol was Great Mother Teressa.

        NATURE, the administrator is SMARTER than science and technology
          SPORT is the SPIRIT to compete regardless of victory or defeat.
          BATTLE of the sexes will RUN as neither sex will agree to forfeit.
        SIN and snake both like to SNEAK with individual analogy.
        Mind yearns, heat cherishes, soul judges, DESTINY begs APOLOGY.

With hair jet black slicked, Buddy’s not your friend.
Oh, he wants you, doll! Watch his music send
you into a frenzy!
But Buddy is crazy —
he’s truly your professor with a blend.

More like Jekyll and Hyde — this is his con.
In the classroom, with gnarly teeth and wan.
He’s a science nerd.
Love is much preferred.
With a test tube he’s turned into a swan.

On your pulse, the melody master voice,
but he’s rude and crude, sorely not your choice.
You prefer the nerd in glasses —
the professor in your classes.
When you find out his secret you rejoice!

'Mai' Limerick Logic

Kimmy Mai has my 'heart' in her pocket, (1)
Does not need either ring or a locket,
Love like beer, always loan, (2)
Less fun drinking alone,
And a blast when you're riding a rocket!

Kimmy Mai "owns the market" on care
And she's fearless when called on to share,
Those who treasure "withhold,"
Don't know value of gold,
Grow up crippled when adults aren't there!

Kimmy Mai knows my heart is just mine,
And thinks sharing is better than fine,
To "lose heart" means you die,
To pretend is to lie,
Heart in chains (on its face) asinine!

Kimmy Mai says she'll love me "forever,"
Thinks I'm tall, handsome, naive, and clever,
Such gifts inborn not learned,
(So they can't be returned),
Still, her words move my world like a lever(3)

Kimmy Mai knows my word is my bond,
Though there are bigger fish in the pond,
And she still chooses me!
"Oh, say can you see," (4)
"Over hill, over dale," (5) "and beyond?" (6)

Poet's Notes:
(1) This line is a little misleadingYou don't have a firm grip on something that is in your pocket, but you certainly have access! I like to think that my love is a gift that must be given daily for it always reverts to me when I sleep and must be consciously given the next morning again! No one can own another's love, nor is it possible to in fact give your love to anotherThat concept of love I think is a lie! It is clear why there are so many broken hearts!
(2) I have always enjoyed the witticism, "You cannot buy beer, only rent it!" I apply a parallel logic to 'love' as well in this verse!
(3) "Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world." - ArchimedesRead me long enough, and I will expose you to a little science sooner or laterI may not believe in Donald Trump, but I believe in my readers!
(4) "Oh say can you see!" I compare Kimmy to the American flag and the best that it can stand for..immigrants united in one nation.
(5) "Over hill, over dale" from the Army Caisson Song...I would go to war for Kimmy!
(6) "and beyond!" Quote from Buzz Lightyear"To infinity and beyond." The only value beyond Kimmy (for me) is Science, (a gift from God), and God Himself!

Energy of God

Energy of God

No matter what I do or how long I wait,
With God in my life things are so great;
True and tried;
Eyes open wide;
Energy exists and never does evaporate.

Exploding and Unloading

Exploding and Unloading

Ergonomics and energy are exploding,
And are all situated for an unloading;
Will occur,
Can endure,
While iron will be eroding and corroding.

James Serious Mysterious Horn
Retired Veteran and Poet

Inspired by Bill Nye Science Guy
and his book, "Undeniable."

In Each Dndeavor

In Each Endeavor

Scientists are excellent in each endeavor;
Constantly compounding things and clever;
Study much;
Stay in touch;
Do remain responsible always and forever.

Everyone Should Be My Soul Mate

Everyone Should Be My Soul Mate

Each moment many people must motivate;
Remove prejudice, discrimination and hate;
Down do settle;
Never meddle
Everyone should always be my soul mate.
