The Adventures of Dr. Quantum 1
by J.B. Pick
Dr Quantum went too far,
Inventing particles so abstract and bizarre
His Nobel Prize caused comment in the bar.
His lecture ends, and none too soon.
Dr Quantum draws a pale baloon
And blows it till it bursts: "Look, there's the moon!"
They lock poor Quantum in the loony bin.
He pricks on toilet paper with a pin:
"The universe is holes where the light gets in."
The warden enters. Quantum isn't there.
A burning pencil dances in the air:
"Behold the absence which is everywhere."
