    Verifiable originals, created in my AP Physic C class's free time.


    Miss Farad was pretty and sensual
    And charged to a reckless potential;
    But a rascal named Ohm
    Conducted her home.
    Her decline was, alas, exponential.


    There once was a fellow named Cole
    Who ventured too near a black hole.
    His dv by dt
    Was quite wondrous to see,
    But now all that's left is his soul.


    The first one only has a perfect rhyme in the American accent, which slurs sensual's final two syllables a bit.

    Feel free to post other highly nerdy science or math poetry.

    There was a young lady of Wight
    Who traveled faster than light.
    She departed one day,
    In a relative way,
    And returned on the previous night.

    --Actual quote from Steven Hawking's A Brief History of Time

    ^One remarkably similar to that appeared in Adrian Berry's The Iron Sun (1977).

    edit: it probably goes all the way back to Einstein's theories of relativity.

    There once was a lady from rides
    Who ate sour apples and died
    The apples fermented
    Inside they lamented
    and made cider inside her insides

    An integer set known as G
    Contained numbers from zero to three
    But with the operation
    of multiplication
    a group, this set failed to be!

    I Yodaed the last line a little, but I feel t'is not bad for a five minute attempt :D
