A little rye

Geologists reputably
discussed each genetic grain
to see the origins of evolution,
the traits of mankind.

How a speck spiralled
through their educated,
discerning hands,
and bonded like a helix
set in individual,
yet collective DNA planet glue.

(Fascinating magazine article)

Me, I examined the grains
in an old oat cracker, eager
for a similar discovery as I
buttered it up.

Then, briefly sidetracked,
unintentionally ate it,

Sometime later, I woke up
after a nap in crumbs of doubt,
from a whole packet series
of carefully timed, controlled,
Nobel award-winning experiments.

My scientific finding: crackers
only wheaten the mind.

Oh, the sacrifices I make.

    I don’t think eating a packet of crackers will ever will the Nobel prize, sadly. This is an unjust world…

  4. Bekki says:

    I know..I say we pelt them with crackers…sadly, you ate them all. (lol)

    Was this experiment induced by another experiment? Sounds like it. Fun poem, either way.

    Most likely, it was induced as he ingested a packet of crackers and slipped into cracker-feed hallucinations.If he warmed up with the instant coffee experiment I can totally see it. (Instant coffee with do that to one)

    I’m saying nothing!

  8. Bekki says:

    Not saying something, sometimes says more. (Snicker)

  9. Matt says:

    Well, with the instant coffee experiment, I may have broken new ground. How instant is instant? Many a professor has shamelessly begged on his knees for me to divulge the answer to that one, jealous of my findings about cookie disintegration.

    I see, and what have you to say about the secret crisp experiments that everyone keeps swearing are not being conducted?
