Reality is No #FlatEarth #science #poetry #poem

Thanks to Isaac Asimov’s inspiration.
Reality’s a Messlight-prism
A sphere is the most perfect shape
But Earth’s an oblate pear.
Beautiful orbits are circular but ellipses are what’s there.
A species should be distinct,
Breed true, you must concur.
But as lineages move through time distinctions start to blur.
The speed of light is constant,
As every student knows,
But that’s only in a vacuum or we wouldn’t have rainbows.
Nuclear forces strong and weak
With charged particles unite.
By when will gravity join in and stop the physics fight?
Perfection is what’s beautiful
But reality stands the test.
Reality will always win,
And reality’s a mess.
