Einstein and the Photon

Einstein and the Photon

"Wave or particle?" is the question.
It gives Albert indigestion:
      Photon is a fickle tickler.

Albert pleads, "Which do you favor?
Dearest Photon, do not waver;
      Choose ballistic or vermicular!"

Photon says, elucidating,
"Please don't think I'm vacillating
      When I say I'm not particler!"

-- Keith Enevoldsen, 2003
