Everything is in context or not

entry picture

 

When is a frog not a tadpole?

when is a giant just tall?

how far must you travel to journey?

and whom deems a sacrifice small?

 

It depends on whom does the sizing

for they choose what's big and what's small

for whom holds the tape,  measures context

holding history's context in thrawl.

Higg's Boson

entry picture

(125 GeV/c2)

 

The Boson that is Higgs,

hides when it jiggs,

with an end nearly instant

-and the unification of quantum chromodynamics still quite distant-

the search for the particle,

was often quite farcical

the technology involved

in the mass that's financial

unlike the thing itself

was massively substantial.

Come and see

entry picture

 

Assertion1:

Come and see

Young Alexander

whoes shadow is cast upon

the arm of a man at rest.

And declares of him

"It is yours, just ask,

I will grant you all

that you request."

 

Response1:

Then come and see

as Alexander casts a shadow

upon the sunbathing Diogenese,

Alexander waited for his

considered reply,

"move out of my light if you please."

Expressive Allowence

entry picture

The penned letter upon the page

is made from strokes and swirls

not rage

forget not the colour of the ink

nor its impression upon the reader

let into reason those thoughts

to sink

not the Editorial into its Leader.
