A couple more ditties

Here are a couple more little ditties inspired by blog entries on Ian Tregillis‘ site.

The first reveals the deep angst 😉 in having to wait for books (and blurbs):

wrt: Arlen & Harburg

(Me)
I could enjoy many an hour
Even readin’ in the shower
Squintin’ in the dark
And my head I’d be fillin’
With thoughts about the villain
If I only had an ARC

I’d read all through the middle
Discoverin’ the riddle
Oh it’ll be a lark

(Ian)
With the words you’d be readin’
Your thoughts you’d be feedin’
If you only had an ARC

(Me)
Oh, I could give you quite a blurb
I could choose a poignant adverb
And then I’d add reverb

I would not be just a reader
Waitin’ for a leader
Like some silly narc
I would caper and be airy
Even if it was scary
If I only had an ARC

In this second entry, we see the life of the modern day physicist amidst urban travails:

(wrt: Lee, Peart, Lifeson and Dubois)

A modern-day physicist
Mean chi square,
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Taggers beware.

Though his lab is not for rent,
Don’t put it down as a convent.
Its got quite a defense,
Beyond the horizon’s events.
The laser

When you try to tag his secret lair
You’ll find all about the henchman’s stare.
Catch the mess, catch the mass
Catch the wire, catch the pith.

The lair has, the lair has,
Zero Point Energy
Maybe as your eyes go wide.

Today’s Tom Sawyer,
He lets fly on you,
And the mind he invades
Is in place of you.

No, his lab is not for rent
To any gods or government.
Always finding, new content,
Electrodes are permanent
Embedded.

When you try to tag his secret lair
You’ll find all about the henchman’s stare..
Catch the tagger, catch the tag,
Catch the breaker, catch the bit.

The lair has, the lair has,
Zero Point Energy
Maybe as your skies go by.

Exit the physicist,
Today’s Tom Sawyer,
He lets fly on you,
And with the mind you trade,
He gets right on to the fiction of the day.
