A lyric poem with super-hyper end-rhymes and a swift, flowing rhythm that carries the reader along from beginning to end in only seconds!


"Quantum Mechanical": An Exercise in the Lyrical

It’s so logical
and poetical
it's certainly atypical;
and not proverbial,

but integral
and, oh so controversial!
But is it topical,
optical,

even for the intellectual
to see the actual
pragmatical
to its theoretical?

So casual, gradual
and implausible,
it’s almost incomprehensible
were it not for the owner’s manual.

It, too, appears eternal--
not temporal.
Never mind paradoxical.
Damn it’s infernal!

Alas, it'll be too “illogical”
for the head magisterial,
whose financial
committee might find it problematical.

Still, the crux is perennial:
it’s too pivotal
to not state the irrefutable
with extra audible mega-decibels

if the funding residuals
for scientific experimentals
like the quantum mechanical
are incommensurable

which is thus deplorable,
intolerable, insufferable,
disagreeable, horrible
and most unsupportable

(in my view as a professional)!
