A Sapphic Ode to Pan scientiae
Not a classical Sapphic ode, but I’ve plagiarised the metre and the first five words from Stephen Fry’s Example (a), so it’s close enough. Besides it’s not a proper personal blog without some bad poetry.
Let's hear it for the scientists, Who seek the universe's cogs, In rocks or stars or blastocysts, Then write in blogs.
The 2007 edition of the Open Laboratory should be ready for the 2008 Science Blogging Conference. This means the nominations for The Open Laboratory 2008 edition will open soon and there tends to be an appeal for poems. There’s nothing like a good poem to open an anthology – and that’s nothing like a good poem. Take it as a challenge.
