Rob Stuart: Clerihews for British Scientists

Stephen Hawking
Can’t do any walking,
But all you need to do is sit
To think about black holes and shit.

Brian Cox
Is always on the bloody box.
I wish he’d knock it off and return
To CERN.

Richard Dawkins’
Profile isn’t on a par with Hawking’s,
But he’s a famously tenacious
Enemy of the fallacious.

Robert Winston
Isn’t based at Princeton.
According to my research material
He’s at Imperial.

Paul Dirac
Has a lovely blue plaque.
That’s what comes
Of being really ace at sums.
