    "The Lepton" -A Physics Poem

    The Lepton

    Once there was a Lepton
    A Lepton!
    A Lepton!
    Once there was a Lepton!
    A Charged Particle!

    Now who's this lepton you might ask?
    Put your int'lect to the task!
    It can move quite very fast!
    Antiparticle is in the past!

    I'll try to give you another clue
    If you see one you might see two.
    Hiding in their lowest shell
    Does any of this ring a bell?

    Bouncing up to a higher rung
    Catching a photon just for fun
    Droping back to a lower state
    Sending a photon to its fate.

    Hiding from within its cloud
    Position is completely shroud
    If you know the exact speed
    Where it went none can heed.

    Quantum is as Quantum does
    From Atomic giant to querky Quark
    All these objects are quite the buzz
    Upon the universal tuning fork.

    It's partner is a nucleon
    Dancing within the nucleus
    Trading gluons with its buddy
    Who is neutral, did you study?

    Why this flighty Fermion
    Is indeed the E-lectron!
    And its partner you'd have guessed
    Is a proton in its hadron vest.

    Positron in Positronium
    Spining round its Electronium
    If they get too juxtaposium
    Vanishing in Gamma Rosium

    Once there was a Lepton
    A Lepton!
    A Lepton!
    Once there was a Lepton!
    A Charged Particle!

    I run away

    You took your love away
    Too fast
    Left no chance to say
    Look Back
    Now I know the truth
    It makes it easier
    Maybe when time goes by
    I'll understand

    Lets pretend that I moved on
    Then I'll tell myself that life goes on without you
    Open my eyes, look deep inside
    I run away, I run away, I run away

    You threw it all away
    So blind
    Pushed me far from you
    In your life
    And now I know the tears wont lead to lonliness
    Baby when time goes by
    I'll understand

    Lets pretend that I moved on
    Then I'll tell myself that life goes on without you
    Open my eyes, look deep inside
    I run away, I run away, I run away

    I run away
    I run away
    I run away

    Lets pretend that I moved on
    Then I'll tell myself that life goes on without you
    Open my eyes, look deep inside
    I run away, I run away

    I run away

    Lets pretend that I moved on
    Then I'll tell myself that life goes on without you
    Open my eyes, look deep inside
    I run away, I run away

    Let me take you down, 'cos I'm going to Strawberry Fields
    Nothing is real, and nothing to get hungabout
    Strawberry Fields forever

    Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see
    It's getting hard to be someone but it all works out, it doesn't matter much to me
    Let me take you down, 'cos I'm going to Strawberry Fields
    Nothing is real, and nothing to get hungabout
    Strawberry Fields forever

    No one I think is in my tree, I mean it must be high or low
    That is you can't you know tune in but it's all right, that is I think it's not too bad

    Let me take you down, 'cos I'm going to Strawberry Fields
    Nothing is real, and nothing to get hungabout
    Strawberry Fields forever

    Always, no sometimes, think it's me, but you know I know when it's a dream
    I think I know I mean a "Yes" but it's all wrong, that is I think I disagree

    Let me take you down, 'cos I'm going to Strawberry Fields
    Nothing is real, and nothing to get hungabout
    Strawberry Fields forever
    Strawberry Fields forever
    Strawberry Fields forever

    Zezman, future poet laureate
    Ignore this sad and sorry lot
    Your poem broached a novel theme
    With an erratic rhyming scheme
    But no less entertaining for it
    In fact, I personally adore it
    Personifying charged particles
    Is nothing short of farcical
    And I mean that as a compliment
    I'm not saying you're incompetent
    In fact, rather the opposite

    The question I wish I had an answer for
    has nothing to do with rythm or rhyme,
    although it may appear like a modern poem
    if I break it into short lines, as follows:
    Since quantum theory is so confusing
    and improbable to the rational,
    deterministic mind, can art
    be the natural form of discourse
    to discuss the behavior of matter
    at very small scales?
    I mean it, seriously.
    (I am going to grog me some quanta,
    preferably in a liquid state.)

    Here's an older poem that The Lepton was losely based upon:

    The Water Molecule
    Copyright © 2004

    Once there was a molecule
    A molecule
    A molecule!
    Once there was a molecule of water!

    And then it flew!
    This molecule
    And then it flew
    Thru a cloud or two.

    It went right up
    And up and down
    It went right up
    Thru a cloud.

    And round and round
    This molecule flew around
    A cloud that frowned
    Then down it went, to the ground.

    It said "Oh my! Oh my!"
    The molecule was picked right up
    In a drop! A drop of rain
    "What am I to gain?"

    And round and round
    The drop of rain it flew
    Thru a cloud or two
    And round the drop of rain it flew.

    Quoth molecule:
    "If this is my pension,
    I can't escape this surface tension!"
    The molecule had to mention!

    Up and down and round and round!
    The drop of rain it flew
    then down to the ground
    It fell and fell.

    "Oh no! Oh no!
    What am I to do!"
    Said the molecule in its plight
    "Stop this crazy hydro-flight!"

    Then the wind it came right out
    And blew and blew
    The drop of rain
    It blew the drop of rain to the sky!

    The drop of rain, cold as ice
    Froze that day, into hail
    "Oh great, this is nice"
    Said the molecule who wished to bail.

    "Wonderful, now I'm stoned"
    The molecule now bemoaned
    "How will I ever become free?"
    Then the hailstone hit a tree.

    "Hey you broke my twig!"
    Said the tree who grew a fig
    "Until you fell it was big!"
    The molecule danced a jig.

    For it had become free!
    From the grasp of the stone
    Upon impact it was thrown
    It now made its plee!

    "Don't bemoan your broken limb!"
    Said the molecule with a grin
    "Maybe you needed a trim,
    Now you look quite slim!"

    Then the sun it came that day
    When the clouds went their way
    Tossed about by the gale
    Wisps of sky that are quite frail.

    At this point I do demarcate
    Would the molecule evaporate?
    With a smile I relate to you
    The molecule became some dew.
