Satirical view of science

                  The Purist

I give you now Professor Twist,

A conscientious scientist.

Trustees exclaimed, ‘He never bungles!’

And sent him off todistant jungles.

Camped on a tropic riverside,

One day he missed his loving bride.

She had, the guide informed him later,

Been eaten by an alligator.

Professor Twist could not but smile.

“You mean,” he said, “a crocodile”

– Ogden Nash (recorded 21/10/1976)
