Three Word Wednesday



(The following stanzas should be read as one poem. Caveat: If you don't know anything about quantum mechanics, this will probably be impenetrable. Sorry!)


Quantum particle
The universe's smart-ass
Always both, not one

Callous scatterbrain
Don't interfere with yourself!
Stop waving so much

A persistent ditz
Famous for uncertainty
And reality

Very clever, well played.

Well done, for sure! Enjoyed these.

I took enough college physics (I even got a few lectures from a Nobel laureate) that I should understand this. But I think my brain has turned mushy since I moved into upper management. I find I even need to call tech support for simple Outlook problems now. Maybe it's just aging.

Knowing enough about physics and quantum particles, I really liked the way you played this.

Sepiru Chris: Thanks! I found yours very amusing too--as usual!

Tumblewords: Thank you!

PJD: Ooh, who was the laureate? (I'm a geek; of course I want to know.)

Don't worry about the poem; it's mostly just silly, even for people who do follow the geek-humour...

ThomG: Thank you!

Even with me knowing very little about quantum mechanics, this rings true. Quite clever.

Stephe: Thank you! I'm glad it's not complete masturbatory egg-headedness! :-D
