Of Relativity and such...

Of Relativity and such
I fear I don't know much;
I've tried so hard to comprehend
Its theories, but in the end,
Although it leaves me feeling small
I'm vague about it all.

Yet here I candidly avov
I'm glad I am not high of brow,
And I can say in sober truth
I don't believe in too much truth:
If you told me the world was flat . . .
I'd let it go at that.

But granted Spatial Time is rue,
I ask myself what can it do
For common folk like you and me
Who make up most humanity?
If Man it cannot benefit
I have no use for it.

But is it not a grief to see
A grizzled grandfather like me
Who gags at Relativity?
When told by men whose brains are bright:
"Indubitably, Einstein's right!"
Just yawns and answers: "Quite."
