Mark R Slaughter (1957)
Your intellect humbles with shattering blow!
Omnipotent, you are at one with the world.
There's no need to seek, as you already know:
Explained, reconciled, all so neatly unfurled.
Those complex equations are pliable toys,
And yours just to play with and loosen your mind.
Hypotheses and theories are also your boys -
In your world, together, all cosily enshrined.
No thought for the average like ignorant I,
‘Intolerable mule’ is your view of my brain.
My boundless limitations stretch far up on high -
All discourse with me renders tedium and pain.
So carry on Genius, forge brilliant new rules
For novel descriptions of universe and all,
And don’t waste your time with us asinine fools -
For you are but mortal, eventually to fall.
