Often unsure, but one thing I know,
As positive as a cation.
When Sammy and I play ribbon you see,
She turns into a mighty wild lion!
I possess no magic,
No special powers.
I am just a man,
Who walks the earth.
An earth which owes me
Food, water and air
Are all given on account.
And when my debt is due,
I will die.
My body returning sustenance
To that earth which,
Granted to me the quickest glimpse,
Of the beauty and wonder
That is the world.
Losing myself out on Chumash land,
So peaceful, serene, every nook and cranny.
Went into the woods to chase a dream and
Wound up lying amongst the Frangipani…
Jump-starting my brain to make an advance,
Reading Dirac, Weinberg, and Witten.
I was going to be studying all weekend long,
But wound up just brushing the kitten…
Being a scientist is what I adore,
Rearranging atoms without fear!
So how did my boss ever decide,
That I’m an electrical engineer?
You don’t have to change,
Just be yourself.
Santa knows how you’ve been,
Fed info by Elf-Elf.
Could have been a bureaucrat,
Or driven a yellow cab.
Instead I am a scientist
Who loves being in his lab!
The Super Moon is a sham, a fraud.
It is not a celestial treat.
What astrophysicists seem to forget,
Is that Poets still have to eat!
