September 6: Tycho Brahe’s Pet Moose

The beauty of the internet is this:
All things connected via hyperlinks.
That simple queries stand at the abyss
Of boundless knowledge and unplanned high jinx.

Perform a search on Henry Purcell’s life,
And one may find the name of his librettist,
Who translated a poem that was rife
With medicine and gave a name to syphilis.

And thus inspired, I reached out to a friend
With whom I had spontaneously composed
A suite upon that ailment. Hitting “send,”
The tyranny of distance is deposed.

All ignorance belies, knowledge acquits-
All one need do is simply search for it.
