LIMERICK
Daniel Samoilovichtrans. Brian Cole
El espacio es curvo, exclamó Barrabás
un astrónomo culto, atrevido y sagaz.
Su anteojo era tan fuerte
que hasta tuvo la suerte
de verse las orejas del lado de atrás.
I know space is curved, said Joe Hind,
an astronomer wise and refined,
but his strong telescope
exceeded his hopes
and he saw his own ears from behind.
