Scientists can have bad days
Franklin's lost his spark
Fleming's caught a nasty cold
And Curie glows in the dark

Nobel caused an explosion
So Galileo's seeing stars
Pillinger's lost his beagle
Somewhere out near Mars

Now Darwin held a party
To put everyone at ease
Einstein brought a relative
Mendel just brought peas

Tesla's built a death ray
And hidden it at Brunel's station
Newton's totally failed to see
The gravity of the situation

Heisenberg was uncertain
If Schrödinger's cat's alive or dead
So he used Occam's razor
To shave its fur instead

Faraday wanted to show his friends
How to make electricity for a dime
Bell's not answering his calls
And Hawking can't make time
The product of mild insomnia and boredom at work...

30/08/07 - Finally fixed the spelling of Schrödinger and Heisenberg, also changed Stephenson to Brunel as it scans better.

Absolute genius!

Viva la insomnia is all I can say at this point, I aspire to the day my mind might wander free enough to create something as entertaining and clever as this!

Good work sir! Nice to see insomnia and boredom put to their correct uses. I realise this is by no way recent, but for some reason I hadn't spotted it before.
