    Physics was used in a conversation
    Then it spread across the nation
    Some people it made ill
    A few heads it did fill
    And now I need a vacation

    How about:

    It seems amazing to me,
    that each tick and each tock,
    of my grandfather clock,
    takes two pie root L over g

    I'm sorry this is not true,
    you've forgotten the amplitoo (:yuck:)
    To be sure, it's a slight effect,
    however, without it you've got a defect..

    Nicely added. You can't get away with an estimation on Physicsforums!!

    Last month I was reading Discover.
    The one with Einstein on the cover.
    It turns out that his blunder
    was more like a wonder.
    And I hear that he was Hubble's lover.

    I have a "physics" poem on my website title page of http://www.quantumdream.net .

    Our world reflects upon a sphere
    Revealing silvered twin
    From whose versed image shall appear
    The universe within.

    So Einstein was gay, you hear?
    Might be he liked c*cks,
    yet his theory rocks,
    although it is rather queer..

    Once a quark with a joker mind
    Pretended "Well guys I went blind :tongue2:"
    The fellows confined and spinning :surprised
    With this wild buddy provoking
    Could not preserve the singlet state
    And the poor and doomed hadron fate
    In a rainbowing blowing end
    Failed to maintain his nice blend


    From science jokes

    I heard something new just yesterday,
    from the lips of Steven Hawking.
    Only the lips were a computer
    cause Steve sounds like like he's squawking.

    He said that he was wrong before
    about the loss of information.
    And even Einstein's black holes
    follow laws of conservation.

    "But Steve," I said, "We knew that."
    "With strings that fact was shown."
    "But I proved it mathmatically,"
    he replied in monotone.

    Steve didn't write a paper
    so I don't know if he's right.
    He said, "Trust me, I'm a genius."
    then rolled slowly out of sight.

    George Gamow's wife, Barbara, penned the following poem in the early 1960's, which Gamow published in one of his books: (it helps if you know something of the Big Bang and Steady State theories, and their proponents)

    "Your years of toil,"
    Said Ryle to Hoyle,
    "Are wasted years, believe me.
    The steady state
    Is out of date.
    Unless my eyes decieve me,
    My telescope
    Has dashed your hope;
    Your tenets are refuted.
    Let me be terse::
    Our universe
    Grows daily more diluted!"
    Said Hoyle, "You quote
    Lemaitre, I note,
    And Gamow. Well, forget them!
    That errant gang
    And their Big Bang --
    Why aid them, and abet them?
    You see, my friend,
    It has no end
    And there was no beginning,
    As Bondi, Gold,
    And I will hold
    Until our hair is thinning!"

    This isn't a poem, but it's a short story I wrote about physics. It was the first story I got published and actually received money for.
    Physics is my Life
    The quantum mechanical "two-slit" experiment proves that some events are not fixed, not finalized, until someone observes them.
    The razor stings as I slice two slits into my wrist, but I'm not afraid. No one ever looks at me.
