Oh, Mr Oppenheimer


By Paul StewartPublished 3 days ago 1 min read

There once was a man named Oppenheimer

Who put the world on a doomsday timer

The bomb he invented

His infamy cemented

He became death, the world destroyer


Thanks for reading. Not the usual funny limerick. I hope you enjoyed it.

    so true. Well done.

  • Sometimes using a usually light-hearted medium to communicate serious truth is a way of really catching our attention. And you found amazing rhymes for oppenheimer!

    The weight of discovery and invention...just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should. Great limerick in the critical sense and the topic as well. Fantastic work :)
