Galileo on non-steroids

When yesterday the monkeys stole
Our peels of corn and coconut
To drop into our backyard well,
I only saw the monkeys steal
Our peels of corn and coconut
To drop into our backyard well.

It’s only when I peed today
To drain the en-saids from my veins,
I saw them for the physicists
Who tried to test Galileo,
Controlling for the autumn draft
That often plagues the Pisa lab.

The pills are killing more than pain.
