Sub-Atomic Particles - Poem by David Keig

I dreamed i was a neutron
inside an atom's heart
surrounded by electrons
their force pulling me apart
i met a pair of bosons
got assaulted by some quarks
found my quantum levels jumping
when something made me start
could i be sure of all this?
in my subatomic world
or would statistical mechanics
introduce a kind of blur
of uncertainty to all things
and so it wasn't clear to me
if i really was a neutron
or just a probability.

    Excellent. Outstanding David

    Ain't that the way?

    Those damn sub atomic particles
    always come in threes
    Splitting up their charge fractions
    For some fatal polar attractions
