The Depravity of Gravity (A Nonsense Rhyme)

The Lobster and the Turtle did
converse upon the sand
with a Gorilla and a Kid.
They spoke of mysteries
that none of them could understand
and never did agree.

“The time has come," the Turtle said,
“to speak of mystery,
of quarks and charms and unmade beds,
of strings and also stars,
the deprav’ty of gravity,
and if there’s life on Mars.”

“But wait, oh wait!” the Lobster cried.
“We want no more of that.
The world is young or else God lied,
and I dislike your coat.”
“Oh shut up!” the Gorilla spat
and stormed off with his Goat.
