Science – we love it !
From mathematics to evolution,
Thermodynamics to climate change,
Electric potential to air pollution –
Anything new and clever and strange !
But when we get home, then what do we read ?
Fantasy, dragons and wizards and war !
Our only science is fiction, indeed –
From laws of physics to psychics of lore !
We like to pretend that we’re Roundheads or Yorks,
Or X-Men, or cyborgs, or zombies, or Gauls.
So plug in the console and slay a few orcs,
Then back to the lab when reality calls…
