A Double Limerick:
On Einstein’s Theory of Relativity :
In High School Physics, I recall having studied Relativity. Relativity was a stunning concept and scientists all over the world debated the veracity of Einstein’s famous equation, E=mc2, which implied that matter and energy were equivalent and, more specifically, that a single particle of matter could be converted into a huge quantity of energy.
Now here is a novel interpretation of that equation from my collection. Hats off to the unknown composer.
E N J O Y!!
Said Einstein, “I have an equation
that some may think Rabelaisian.
Let V be virginity
and P equal constant persuasion.
Now, let V over P be inverted
and the root of persuasion inserted
It is easy to see
the result, Q.E.D.
is a relative,” Einstein asserted.
