    MEASURE

    To measure nature with absolute certainty,
    one would need a tool of absolute certainty.
    Unfortunately for science,
    there is no such thing!
    Measure?

    I'll be right back - I'm going to see if I can find a ruler with sufficient precision to measure your point...

    I don't think you can rhyme certainty with itself, or is this one of those kind of poems that don't rhyme?:confused:

    and a true point it is: no dimension; no depth.


    (punch-line drums please)

    OK. That was funny.

    You obviously just can not appreciate art. The only poems I like are the ones Mike Meyers did in So I married an Axe Murderer.
