Newton's Laws of Motion
Isaac Newton was English born
in sixteen and forty three...
the year that Galileo died,
Young Master Isaac came to be.
Math and science were his loves
with astronomy pursuits...
Isaac was a bright young lad,
whose curiosity bore great fruits.
He went to school and did excel,
as an academic, fine,
and sweet knowledge as if wine.
Fascinated by mere movement
in the daily, temporal realm,
his ideas took the ship by storm
where he, then, assumed the helm.
His theories revolutionized
the scientific notion
when he wrote the famous three divine
Newton's Laws of Motion.
He so impressed the world at large
with his most evolving vision
that dubbing him a royal knight
was the fair Queen Anne's decision.
Now, here are Newton's Motion Laws,
There are but only three...
the "law of inertia" is the first
of Isaac's law decree...
which says an object has a mind
to do what it will do...
continuing until a force
will alter, thus, it's view.
This is simplified, of course,
but is the basic thought
behind the law of inertia
that Newton's theory taught.
The second law that Newton wrote
was the formula for force
exerted on an object that
would move it down a course.
Mass and acceleration
when multiplied, will yield
the force required to move a rock
across the farmer's field.
Newton's third and final law,
perhaps the best of all...
involves the law of equals
for every rise, there is a fall.
Every little action has
a counterpart, a twin...
which is equal and yet opposite
to its re-actionary din.
Sir Isaac Newton changed the world
with these three little tools,
changed the game of science,
by defining simple rules.
The world we know today would be
a very different place
without his Laws of Motion,
Sir Isaac Newton's coup de grace!
