The Adventures of Dr. Quantum 1
by J.B. Pick


Dr Quantum went too far,

Inventing particles so abstract and bizarre

His Nobel Prize caused comment in the bar.


His lecture ends, and none too soon.

Dr Quantum draws a pale baloon

And blows it till it bursts: "Look, there's the moon!"


They lock poor Quantum in the loony bin.

He pricks on toilet paper with a pin:

"The universe is holes where the light gets in."


The warden enters. Quantum isn't there.

A burning pencil dances in the air:

"Behold the absence which is everywhere."
