Stephen Hawking

Can’t do any walking,

But all you need to do is sit

To think about black holes and shit.


Brian Cox

Is always on the bloody box.

I wish he’d knock it off and return



Karl Popper

Gave himself a whopper

Of a philosophical vocation,

Which was to repudiate the classical observationalist/inductivist form of scientific method in favour of empirical   falsification.



Makes mediocrities

Of other ages’



Doesn’t twerk. 

It’s a little infra dig to grind and gyrate

When you’re forty-eight.

John Cage

Had the temerity to stage

Orchestrated silence,

Which surprisingly never moved anyone to violence.


Steve Reich

Would swing a live mike

Back and forth over a speaker until it came to rest

To the delight of the easily impressed.
