Surely I was joking,
Instead of Feynman Lectures,
And assembling the six easy pieces,
Would give me,
The pleasure of finding things out

I wanted to be an entrepreneur
And take the not so easy six pieces
And imagine the ripple effect,

I said to myself
What do you care what other people think

Don’t you have time to think ?
Meaning of it all:

My perfectly reasonable deviations
Are best described as
An Adventure of a curious character

I wrote this as part of reflections for the IIT GLC conference. The original article is referenced here

Some of you may recognize the inspiration behind this poem. Dr. Richard Feynman was a huge influence during my teenage years and this is a tribute to his work in some strange sense.
