Einstein

Now there was a man

With a face like a roadmap

And a mind so sublime

Understood the dimension of time

Driven to score, but also of the humble kind

So Einstein took upon himself the quest

To figure out how universe works

‘Some things need ratification

Let me work out the equation.’

E=MC squared,

C explained to be the set speed of light.

Thus when matter is much, energy is high.

That’s some physics all right,

But it hasn’t outdone

The work of Isaac Newton

What goes up must come down

Gravity makes the world go round

It’s a roller coaster ride

This law of mechanics

Needs some relativity

So for a quantum leap

What parameters should I keep?

I’ll take to mathematics

With all its useful antics

If A=X+Y+Z

Are all of them known?

Are some of them off?

What am I being shown?

How do I call the universe’s bluff?

If X and Y are joined

And I put two and two together

While silence denotes Z…

Well, let me see…

Must I then take the root

Or square them to shoot

This ball into the net?

What do I subtract

How separate fiction from fact?

Do I go for the integral equation

Or first tackle long division?

I know if I fix this

I’ll be greeted with pomp

And a Nobel Prize of Physics

But it’s not what I want

Politics are only for now

Equations…for eternity they stand

So I am driven to get it

And I am destined to score

I will solve this equation

And before all dissolves

I will bring to the fore:

All problems have a solution

In the heart of mankind

From the power of the human mind

Imagination is greater than knowledge

As some things will be kept unsolved

And the mystery, the trust, the intuition

Are a most important addition

To acquire the desired:

Result

*Or to quote Einstein, who was a poet in his own right:
If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.*
