Fission and superstition

H. M. K.

This is the Tale of Frederick Wermyss
Whose Parents weren't on speaking terms.
So when Fred wrote to Santa Claus
It was in duplicate because
One went to Dad and one to Mum --
Both ask for some Plutonium.
See the result: Father and Mother --
Without Consulting one another --
Purchased two Lumps of Largish Size,
Intending them as a Surprise,
Which met in Frederick's Stocking and
Laid level Ten square Miles of Land.

Learn from this Dismal Tale of Fission
Not to mix Science with Superstition.
