Explain a Principle of Physics in a Pair of Limericks

Two limericks to explain… Newton’s Second Law? Thermodynamics? Momentum? Conservation of Energy? Do you really need to look up the formula for a limerick?

I chose Newton’s 1st law of Motion, otherwise known as “The Law of Inertia.”

Law of Inertia Part I (Limerick by Robyn Cashmore)

An object at rest will remain at rest.
A notion I wanted to put to the test.
I sat down one day,
And there I still stay,
To inertia I quite acquiesced.

 Law of Inertia Part 2 (Limerick by Robyn Cashmore)

An object in motion continues in motion.
I’ve always found this a sensible notion.
I would test this too,
To see if it’s true,
But to inertia part 1 I have total devotion

Found this wonderful image on-line, it says it all. 🙂
