The graviton's something unique,
A particle many would seek.
To Earth we are stuck
It seems, more by luck,
For its coupling's exceedingly weak!
deBroglie, caught quite unawares,
Observed a mixed state of affairs:
Implicit in Maxwell's equations
The Past Isn't What it Used To Be
His friend, a professor named Beecham,
A Brief History of Gravity
It filled Gallileo with mirth
Then Newton announced in due course
But remarkably, Einstein's equation
Yet the end of the story's not written;
'tHooft had the realization
Of couplings' peculiar relation.
He'd only to solve
Just how they evolve,
The Particle Physics morass
Is stuck on the problem of mass.
If Higgs can be found,
We'll all come around.
Till then it's a pain in the neck.
Beware of the plasma fanatics,
They're prone to a fusion of antics
"The quark's a mysterious fellow!"
My advisor was oft prone to bellow,
"It's red, blue, or green,
(Though it's never been seen),
And certainly couldn't be yellow!"
