If the apple did not render me unconscious,
And if I had been a profound thinker quite assiduous,
Like Sir Newton, then the situation, momentous,
Would have been, well, extraordinarily historic.
But as it is, I am fond of apples,
My gustatory senses, highly attracted by fruits palatable
Would surely go rapidly functioning,
Yes, savouring the juicy apple, greedily crunching.
However, being in the shoes of the legendary Newton,
And not a mere simpleton,
I would pick up the apple, look up pensively
And start questioning about the law of gravity.
My ‘Principia’ on the law of universal gravitation,
Namely about every particle attraction
Towards every other particle, would bring me accolades,
I would think, most probably for many decades.
Would never have expected universal cognition
For even centuries or will it be for eons?
Ha, really, never expected my ‘Principia’
Would lead to many other universal phenomena.
My great spirit can now bask in my glory,
Being etched in science’ memory
Probably eternally, for my ‘Law of Gravity’.
