A Bit o' Doggerel
Catz and Dogz
Godz and Quantum Chaos
by R C Larlham
Pavlov’s dog and Schrodinger’s cat
Went out for lunch... or other
Said the dog to the cat,
“You know where it’s at
You know if you’re dead
Or alive in that box I’ll just bet.
“Einstein, whose hair was befrizzled
By Tesla, has said of your plight,
“God would never play dice
With th’ multi-parallel-verse.”
This quantum of chaos is but an
Electron cloud figmentation.”
Schrodinger’s cat said, “Who knows
Which witch is the daughter of which.
And who can go fast
Comes down at the last
To where he was last by God seen
When he was going his fastest.”
The slobbering dog laughed himself sick.
“Of this God, you know that there is none.”
“Au contraire!” cried the cat
As he changed and he stretched,
“There is but one God who’s made
Fools of you all and I’m that one.”
From the cat there emitted a Norseman
Clad in war-clothes and bearing an axe.
‘T’was Loki, the malevolent jokester.
“Believe two impossible things
At breakfast and then again bed,
Or be ready to withstand hot pokesters.”
The dog gazed up at the glowering God.
“I don’t suppose...” he began, but the
Dinner bell rang, and what he’d’ve said
Was lost in salivary slobber.
“Tell mankind,” called Loki, “their only God’s
Back. They must believe all or nothin'.”
The gods mankind makes while in wonder
When enslaved can be made to bring thunder
And to kill all they see, for one
Day or three just to show us it can be done.
And Schrodinger’s cat knows where it’s at,
And lies dead in the box of his life.
When it opens he’ll be dead or alive.
