(For Mr Richard Tima, a SHESAN and CCAST Bambili tutor who put physics strongly on the national map)

Did Einstein err
When he posited about the theory of relativity
Or did Newton falter
When he theorized about gravity?
It's not Galilean invariance.
Hitler's scientist was a Herr
Whose objectivity turned out to be subjectivity
He thought Germany was a magnet,
The world its magnetic field
And the dotted humans here and there, its iron filings.
But as the history of science was to prove
The force of gravity pulls every object downwards
And power gain is relative
Even if Newton's apple
In today's modern world
Becomes the history of yesterday.
