Science Street

The street where I work

The street where I work has a ring at each end
Spinning the subatomic in electromagnetic tunnels, round and round
Particle accelerators here on the English chalk
One under a small turfed mound, proudly flying the flags of nations
The other squat, resembling an alien mothership resplendent in silver curves
Both cousins of the great ring in Geneva, the largest machine ever built
Luminous fibres of glass traverse a continent
Bringing its discoveries to the hall under my desk
Science glows alive on my street.
