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.

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
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."
Then come and see
as Alexander casts a shadow
upon the sunbathing Diogenese,
Alexander waited for his
"move out of my light if you please."...

The penned letter upon the page
is made from strokes and swirls
forget not the colour of the ink
nor its impression upon the reader
let into reason those thoughts
not the Editorial into its Leader.
